The Smart Tech Challenges Foundation is organizing a series of challenges aimed at encouraging the creation of free- market solutions to reduce gun violence. We can speed up the discovery of innovative technologies to make America safer without encroaching upon our Second Amendment rights. We are currently reviewing applications to our Firearms Challenge.

Smart Tech for Firearms

Creating technology that reliably authorizes approved use—and blocks the unauthorized use—of firearms and associated ammunitions systems.

Smart Tech for Big Data

Finding solutions with big data & predictive analytics—including optimized law enforcement patrol routes and gunshot detection.

Smart Tech for Brain Health

Promoting brain health through innovating in the fields of neurology, mental health, and optimized intervention.

Smart Tech for Community Safety

Fostering community & school safety including crisis response telecoms solutions, improved first responder systems, and crowd-based alert networks.
