The Epilepsy Therapy Project, an initiative of the Epilepsy Foundation, is inviting entries that represent the most innovative new ideas in epilepsy treatment and care for its third annual Shark Tank Competition. The winner(s) of the 2014 Shark Tank Competition will receive international recognition and compete for awards totaling $200,000 to support the development and commercialization of an important new product, technology or therapeutic concept to help people with epilepsy.

The Shark Tank review committee will select as many as five finalists.  All finalists will be invited to present their product concepts or candidates at the 2014 Epilepsy Pipeline Update Conference, scheduled from June 5-7. The winning entry will be selected by a panel of judges representing physicians and scientists, corporate executives, leading industry investors, people with epilepsy and their family members. The project deemed to be the most innovative will be announced at the conference, and the winner(s) can receive as much as $200,000 to accelerate the idea towards improving the quality of life of people with epilepsy. All finalists are eligible for a travel stipend to attend the conference and free conference registration.
