Hey folks,

We're gearing up for an awesome design slam on Monday June 21st. Teams of attendees will be given a design challenge, and will share their proposed solutions at the end of the night. We'll put out an official invitation shortly, but in the meantime -- we are looking for a sponsor to help us make this event a reality.

The problem with being a zero-money organization is that now and then we need materials and have no way to pay for them.

So we're looking for an awesome company who will help us buy:

  • A bunch of black sketching markers (Sharpies or similar) - say 40
  • A huge pile of 11x17 or larger paper (or similar - it doesn't have to be fancy - we're just sketching stuff on it)
  • Some tape so we can post our beautiful designs on the walls at Function13


In return this awesome company would get:

  • Promotion in our event announcement
  • An opportunity to tell us about your company that night
  • A slide with your logo - to be shown before the event starts


An in-kind donation is easiest, so no money has to change hands. Alternatively, we could buy the supplies and have you reimburse us. If you'd like to form a longer-term partnership with us, all the better!

Email us at if you'd like to help us out.

Thanks all! Looking forward to seeing you that night. More info very soon...
