Opportunity for USA, Canada, and International individuals and businesses to participate in a competition for the development of new concepts to treat epilepsy. The award will support the development and commercialization of the winning concepts. Projects may include, but are not limited to, new drugs, devices, systems, technologies, and therapies for people with epilepsy and seizures.
The Epilepsy Foundation is inviting submissions representing the most innovative new ideas in epilepsy treatment and care for its annual Shark Tank Competition. This year, the Foundation has two submission categories.
Shark Tank Investment Prize - The Epilepsy Foundation will invest up to $250,000 in a promising new product, technology or therapy to help people with epilepsy through the Epilepsy Ventures Fund. Applicants must have an established business entity to be eligible for the investment and must have a prototype of their product(s). In return for the investment the Epilepsy Ventures Fund expects to participate in ROI generated by the product in a percentage relative to the percentage of the overall project the investment represents. This will be negotiated immediately following the declaration of the winner.
Shark Tank Community Impact Award - The Epilepsy Foundation will award $25,000 to an important product or technology to help people with epilepsy that is not on a commercialization pathway. Unlike the investment prize, applicants that are not associated with companies may apply as long as they have a prototype of their product. Examples of past community funded projects include the seizure and fall detection app, Seizario and the Kenyan epilepsy awareness project, M-Kifafa (now known as Fafanuka).
