Prudential Overall Supply Helps Support JNJ Innovation – QuickFire Lab Coat Design Challenge

Prudential Overall Supply, an industry leader in reusable image work apparel and related textiles, today announced its support for Johnson & Johnson’s QuickFire Lab Coat Design Challenge.

The QuickFire Lab Coat Design Challenge is a wonderful opportunity for entrepreneurs and designers to have a chance to win up to $50,000 in grants, mentorship, and even the chance for a design to come to life.

Johnson & Johnson Innovation is calling on designers and entrepreneurs to re-think the 125 year-old design of the white lab coat – to transform the age-old, often stereotyped symbol of science into a symbol of breakthrough innovation in the 21st century using modern design, textile engineering and wearable technology.  World renowned entrepreneur and Shark on ABC’s four-time Emmy Award winning series, Shark Tank, Daymond John will serve as a judge.

Joining John as judges are experts from science and technology, textile engineering and wearables, as well as a representative of Johnson & Johnson Innovation - JJDC, Inc. – the strategic venture capital arm of Johnson & Johnson.

The deadline to apply is February 2nd. You can learn more about the JLABS QuickFire Challenge and submit applications here. Finalists will compete in a Facebook Live event to select the winner of the Challenge in Spring 2018.
