Business Type


Guardian Athletics, with a post-money valuation of $8.38 million, is raising funds on NetCapital. The company designs and manufactures protective gear for athletes. The flagship product, KatoCollar, protects the head and neck of athletes and football players. The collar slows down the movement after the impact and offers protection without restricting movement. Jeff Chambers founded Guardian Athletics in October 2019 and raised $1 million in previous rounds of financing. The proceeds of the current crowdfunding campaign, with a minimum goal of $10,000 and a maximum goal of $250,000, will target biomechanical testing, debt repayment, marketing, and managers’ compensation. Guardian Athletics has received an innovation grant from the Department of Economic and Employment Division and has supplied the collars to many football teams.
