Hello. Why is it we can put Man on the Moon (and nearly Mars) and not prevent the 'common' ankle sprain in Elite Sport ?

I am putting a team together to commercialise the 'solution' after 20 + years of waiting for athletes to be understood as employees, and ankle protection a WHS right, not a Sponsorship opportunity. Ankle sprains now result in the single largest health cost globally for any injury, when you factor in arthritis and early death, with no incentive for the current players to change. A tape/brace hybrid that functions more like an 'air-bag' or retractable seatbelt, that suppresses the high impulse forces of the ankle sprain, is the answer for sure. Creating a Co. capable of doing what Nike did to sports shoes FOR athletes will take more 'team' than just 20 plus years of new, yet to be released products. It will take a KiSS team (Kinetic impulse Suppression System) Official release is June 2018, by invitation to conduct a 1.5 hour Workshop in the official program, to the elite of European Football at FIFA XXVII Isokinetic Medical Group Conference Football Medicine Outcomes ARE WE WINNING? Camp Nou, Barcelona • 2nd- 3rd- 4th, June, 2018 As the only product that can prevent sprains, with the intent to repair ankle ligaments (tape and braces cannot repair ankle ligaments and won't), and the World's first Stem Cell Therapy ankle system, initial fund raising is to initiate the Industry Partnership with Sydney Uni and others (in progress). The enormous value of the market will be examined and planned and funded from the current capital raising, and begin supply of the most valuable sports market in the world while. I think the people helping me at this level may know some of you, and preventing the common ankle sprain is a big story ! Craig J Hubbard

Do you want the best TV show episode?

I have an eco friendly, non toxic, biodegradable replacement for toxic foam & powder fire fighting solutions. It fights all classes of fire and has been commodotised for different fire types to enable ease of use by young and old alike. Its an absolute game changer and will save lives. If Mark has the balls (and I believe he has) to take it to the Cartel that "own" the ANZ fire safety & extinguisher market, I'm game if he is!

Being a startup but have received a lot of interest to work with celebrities and major tv channel - how to raise capital

Hi, We have launched our product in Australia ($50 million market in Australia) and have been getting a good exposure through marketing. Our online sales are ok but increasing due to heavy social media advertising. But we still have not been able to enter retail space, its been 5 months since our product launch. We have had interest from celebrities and recently a major TV channel to be a part of their show, but the investment is huge - so how to raise such a capital in a short time. We see its like"chicken and egg" situation, if we don't do that we might not get such huge exposure and retail won't entertain us - as they have asked us to raise the brand awareness through marketing and advertising before the list us. But if we go ahead with TV channel then due to huge investment, we won't be able to recoup just through online sales. Your help would be highly appreciated. Thanks
