Laptop – Sponsor update

November 30, 2008

I really wanted to thank everyone who has expressed an interest in the sponsor my laptop program for Brest Cancer Care.

Admittedly, sponsoring my laptop is pretty uninspiring for some, however I am amazed at the money this has raised, now over £500, with 8 people or companies donating. A number of people who have donated have also asked to be anonymous, so thank you.

So, the companies who have so far sponsored my laptop are:

Sun Microsystems – Start Up Essentials

The Sun Startup Essentials program is designed specifically to help startups get off the ground rapidly and at lower cost. The program consists of discounted or free products and services designed with startups in mind. In addition a quick application and online catalogue delivers what you need fast.

I would like to thank Stewart Townsend for this excellent donation to Brest Cancer Care. I met Stewart (albeit very briefly) at FOWA this year and its quite clear the guys ‘n gals at Sun are some of the most passionate supporters of tech startups.

I know there are a few of you reading this that could probably do with talking to Stewart and his team, so get in touch with him via mail or Twitter.
