Thirty million youth athletes in the United States suffer an estimated 3.8 million concussions annually. Most of these injuries go unnoticed and undiagnosed, despite their established connection to long-term health issues. At Jolt, we make an active head impact tracking system worn by youth athletes. Our system enables early detection of head trauma and directs the removal of at-risk athletes from activity for immediate evaluation via our paired mobile application.
Our VMS mentors' focus on short-term deliverables has been instrumental in helping us to achieve the rapid pace of development necessary to bring our product to market. And their accumulated experience and network of industry contacts have proved to be invaluable resources along the way. We would not be where we are today without their direction and encouragement.
