$1M Smart Tech Challenges Foundation
After the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting incident, investors in Silicon Valley put their money towards a $1 million competition to incentivize tech development in firearm safety. Timmy applied with his new concept that he had been working on after his LAPD research and won a Phase 1 grant of $10,000. There were nine other winners selected from all around the world, some developing smartguns and most a lot further ahead in development. But $10,000 gave Timmy the resources to kickstart development.
