Football is under attack by parents, the medical and legal community, and ex-players based on head injuries. The football helmet market has been dominated by two players for almost 40 years. Tony Titus, the Senior VP of Sales and Marketing for VICIS, will present why VICIS, a startup out of the University of Washington, would raise almost $85M and take on the big competitors in a challenging space by reinventing the football helmet!
