willpate got their new t-shirt by running a design contest:
Shirt Design for VenCorps
Check out willpate's T-shirt contest…
VenCorps is a community for discovering, funding and growing startup companies. We connect founders, funders and facilitators together in a community of interest: startup success. We count on the wisdom of the crowds to nominate, rate and choose startups to win a 50k investment. We count on the participation of crowds to assist grow those startups and help entrepreneurs reach success. Over a hundred years ago Mr. Spencer Trask helped change the world by funding Thomas Edison’s lightbulb. The investment firm he inspired has continued to change the world by funding the first human genome company, the first stem cell company, the first optical integrated circuit company, and the first AIDS vaccine research. In the last 15 years Spencer Trask & Co. has launched start-ups attracting more than $4 billion. Soon we will launch VenCorps to fix how companies get funded and grow.
What's your vision?
We want a non-convential tshirt design for the members of our community. Too many shirts that companies give away are tossed to the bottom of the drawer. We want a shirt that people are proud to wear, no matter where they may be. Our company is based on the principles of crowdsourcing, it's in our very DNA. That's why we came to 99designs to engage you awesome designers to design our shirt.
