Newark element14 project support
« on: September 01, 2015, 12:00:19 AM »
All,


We received the following two emails from Newark element14; upon our reply, it sounds like they're more offering support for projects at the lab/for the lab. I'm open for suggestions, otherwise, I don't have anything to tell them.


-Jamie




To whom it may concern,
 
My name is Brandon and I oversee community outreach and webmaster relations for Newark element14, a leading global distributor of electronic components. We take pride in our participation within the tech space, frequently engaging with students, teachers, engineers, and bloggers. Our goal is to support their efforts by providing them with complimentary products and tools, engineer-written tutorials or content, and other types of funding or support.
 
I came across FamiLAB during my browsing of https://wiki.hackerspaces.org and I would love to support this initiative. Open workshops, ?think tanks? or ?hack spaces? as they are called are very valuable but underserved areas within the engineering, technology, and design communities! I commend your efforts to educate and empower community members.
 
Please do let me know if any support may interest you.






Hello Jamie,
 
We could provide FamiLAB with products for projects at a heavily discounted or possibly free rate. Additionally, we could provide funding.
 
Let me know if you have any other ideas. Please provide me with as much detail as you can so we can better identify how we can help you.

Well, right, but I posted because it sounded like it was for specific projects. I'll reply and see what they say.

Their next reply, when I asked what our return obligation would be:




That sounds great. I think digital recognition with a link and perhaps an article, and (depending on our level of support) some type of concrete recognition within the organization would be great. Examples may include room or program names or logos added to shirts.
 
Everything is very flexible at the moment, so I would be happy to advance this into something more concrete.
