Organized by: Elle Kennedy Cadieux
Event Name: Women Startup Challenge
The Alpha Cube Sat Team is out to win the NASA Cube Quest Challenge. Our teams founding sponsor is Xtraordinary Innovative Space Partnerships, Inc (XISP-Inc) http://www.xisp-inc.com, with corporate, government, education and nonprofit partners like Community Safety Programs. Our strategy is to succeed through 'coopertition': a combination of competition and cooperation. We intend to leverage all available assets implementing the project as part of multiple profit driven technology development efforts underway by our teammates and sponsors. Our objectives are to advance technology for long-distance space communications and long-duration space propulsion. We will also further scientific understanding of and open commercial space access of the moon and deep space. More about the team at http://Alphacubesat.com.
We're building a prototype now so need some money for materials, and for application to a grant that needs the 3D model. Launch 2017.

I just got out of chemo treatments for my third cancer and so would love for this project to get funded and turn into a job!
Note: all donors were refunded (except Traci, Matteo, and Gus who were giving money to the team and we're not Michelle's personal donors. $50 given to XISP-inc.com except Crowdrise fees 10 percent). Some of the fundraiser money was stolen by an outside contractor and related bank fees. Other money: there was not consensus on where to spend on equipment that costs thousands. Michelle has resigned from the team on good terms
