Former New Orleans Saint Steve Gleason spent his 36th birthday Tuesday hosting the “Gleason Challenge” at Gallier Hall in New Orleans for New Orleans Entrepreneur Week (NOEW).

Gleason challenged inventors, entrepreneurs, investors and scientists to create technology that provides solutions for people with disabilities in New Orleans.

Gleason, who suffers from ALS, eventually lost the use of his voice due to the disease. Gleason speaks through a synthetic voice on a computer connected to his wheelchair. He writes his words using his eyes.

In his opening speech, Gleason stressed with more support and technology, people with disabilities can be more productive for years, even decades
