makers for heroes


It's time to shake things up...

Injured veterans just want to get on with their lives. For many, getting on with life includes doing the things they enjoyed before their injuries: they want to dance and surf and play music and travel. Unfortunately, their injuries - whether physical or cognitive - can often get in the way. Far too often, there are no tools to help these heroes get back to the activities they love and give their lives meaning.


Cue the revolution

We can do better. 

Join Challenge America and our Israeli partner, Restart, on the frontier of innovation. We're challenging you to think differently about how we serve our nation's heroes. Through the Makers For Heroes program, veterans tell us what they need (they are the Need Knowers) and then are paired with teams of engineers and other experts (or Need Makers) to fashion creative solutions that address those needs. Afterward, Challenge America and Restart partner with TOM Global to share these creations through an open-source platform, making them accessible to every veteran everywhere.

Whereas mainstream approaches ask veterans to adapt to existing products, Makers For Heroes builds each solution from the veteran up. At Challenge America, everything begins with the needs of our veterans.
