Why We Created Fundraising Tools for FIRST Teams
We are huge fans of FIRST and learned from Dean Kamen about the challenge teams face in raising money to cover all their expenses. Accordingly, we were eager to help. We spent a tremendous amount of time speaking with people at FIRST, with teams, sponsors, and others to understand the teams' complex needs and how we could provide just the right solution.
