Arizona State University Grad Student in the Running for College Entrepreneur of the Year

Tempe, Ariz. (PRWEB) August 28, 2014

Arizona State University graduate student Anthony Gonzales, co-founder of Force Impact Technologies, has been named one of five finalists in Entrepreneur magazines 2014 College Entrepreneur of the Year competition.

This is the fourth consecutive year that an ASU student has been a finalist in the competition. Jared Schoepf, co-founder of SafeSIPP, and JJ Tang, co-founder of Vantage Realized, were finalists in 2013 and 2012, respectively. In 2011, ASU dominated the competition: Three of the five finalists were ASU students, with G3Box co-founder Gabrielle Palermo winning top honors.

The winner of the 2014 competition will be determined by the results of a public vote in combination with the votes of a panel of judges. The public can vote online at through Sept. 19. The winner will be announced in the magazines January 2015 issue.

Im thrilled to be named a finalist in this prestigious competition, Gonzales said. Its an honor to follow in the footsteps of the outstanding ASU entrepreneurs who have been recognized by Entrepreneur magazine.

Gonzales, an MBA student in ASUs W. P. Carey School of Business, was motivated to start his company after suffering a concussion during a collision in a collegiate rugby game. He didnt have any typical concussion symptoms immediately following the incident, and with no idea that he had just sustained a serious head injury, he attempted to keep playing. Fortunately for him, his teammate, a trained EMT, recognized the possibility of concussion and intervened.

Determined to help other athletes minimize the risk of head injuries, Anthony joined forces with W. P. Carey alumnus Bob Merriman to found Force Impact Technologies (FIT). The companys first product is the FITGuard, a mouth guard for athletes that integrates force-detection technology. FITGuard measures the force of an impact and illuminates when the force exceeds a set threshold, giving athletes, coaches and trainers a visual signal that a player has been subjected to a level of force that could cause a head injury.
