OPEN INNOVATION CHALLENGE for
ABOUT THE CHALLENGE
We are looking for Battery Technologies to help build a next generation (cordless & sustainable) hairdryer.
Win the chance for a long-term partnership with a successful system supplier!
There is currently no battery on the market that can do justice to a cordless hair dryer. Either the drying performance is too low or the play time is too short to dry the hair completely.
Therefore, your challenge is to develop an eco-friendly battery (or any other approach) to be used in a cordless hair dryer that has no noticeable disadvantage compared to a normal travel hairdryer.
KEEP IN MIND: Playtime, lifetime, weight and size are critical for any product with rechargeable batteries.
As part of GOOD STUFF Ventures, your team will be mentioned as inventor of the solution on our product landing page. But more importantly, you will see your solution entering the market and profit longterm from its success.
We can apply an IP acquisition or licensing model, depending on the wishes and needs of the teams. As compensation revenues will be shared for every item sold.
Playtime min. 25-30 minutes
Performance like a “travel” hairdryer with 1200 W
Two speed levels
Three heating levels
Cool shot function
LED for battery status
Battery max. 10.000 mAh
Infrared heating system or similar innovative heating solution preferred
Ideally, your solution ensures low negative impacts on the environment.
This includes durability, repairability, lightweight, low carbon footprint, use of recycled or even bio-/biodegradable/compostable materials and/or other circular plastics/materials.
No use of hazardous substances, no added microplastics and compliance with other chemical/environmental regulations are a matter of course for us.
You are a university research group, research center, individual inventor or startup.
You have developed an innovative technology that could be used to address the described challenge.
