The wearable technology is meant to illuminate the space around a person at night when there might not be other lights around. This serves two purposes. One is to deter would-be attackers as the wearer is bathed in light.  Another is to help the wear

Toddi commented on The co-authoring platform

I think keeping the creative juices of older people flowing is a wonderful idea-I also like this idea because as people age, they think they lose certain abilities and this type of project would keep them engaged and confident.

Toddi commented on Help an entrepreneur !

I think this idea can really work; in fact, there are already a number of organizations that partner up entrepreneurs in need of mentorship and guidance though they don't focus on the generational aspect of pairing a younger with an older. It might be useful to look into some of these organizations like the Small Business Adminstration's program (http://www.sba.gov/content/find-business-mentor)

I think this idea would be pretty easy to prototype and test based on the suggestions that you had to start out--for ambassadors, I'm wondering if you could form a a strategic alliance with a non-profit like the boys and girls club--some sort of organization that has a local presence is various communities throughout the country.
