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!

THE BRIEF

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. 

Benefits

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.

No use of hazardous substances, no added microplastics and compliance with other chemical/environmental regulations are a matter of course for us.
