I had to fact check this! I’m surprised there is only 1 team in Montana
In terms of big sponsors, the first place I would look is mentor’s companies. I know in Michigan, you can easily get some sort of money if you have a mentor on a team if they’re employed at one of the big automotive companies
It’s going to be tougher with COVID
Also, don’t underestimate small sponsors. Get a small sponsor to take care of an expensive part of the team. For example, a metal supplier for metal, a restaurant to feed the team on weekends/competitions, a hardware store for rivets and tools, etc.
Our team has over 80 sponsors, all decently small. I can count on one hand the amount of sponsors that donate over $1000
