Help Us Support Flywheel Project

We all use Amazon. But did you know that Amazon donates a portion of its sales to nonprofits through AmazonSmile? Flywheel Project, our internship program with 501(c)(3) status, is an eligible and worthwhile beneficiary.

If you'd like to show your support at no extra cost, go to AmazonSmile and select Flywheel Project. Amazon will then donate 0.5% of every dollar spent on eligible AmazonSmile purchases to our in-house nonprofit. Thank you in advance for your support! 

Flywheel Project Applications

On a related note, Flywheel Project is now accepting applications for summer interns at Black Lab Sports. We're looking for college students and graduates who are interested in film and video production, software development, legal, entrepreneurship, and learning what it takes to bring a brand to market.

Black Lab Sports houses a dozen independent and portfolio companies. This diverse ecosystem is the ideal place to develop an understanding of business, art, fitness, sports, and technology. Our leadership program is designed to provide students with the experience and network needed to thrive in a future career. For more information and to apply, please go to Flywheel Project.

Folwell Receives RAGBRAI Commission

Congratulations to Gail Folwell on her recent RAGBRAI commission!

Dating back to 1973, RAGBRAI is the largest bike-touring event in the world. We can't wait to see what she creates!
