Our sponsors give us the resources we need to stay on the cutting edge of solar car racing. From their time to their products to the financial support necessary for international competition, these are the companies and individuals that believe in us and support us. Without our sponsors, our car would be nothing more than precise drawings. These sponsors give us guidance when we get overwhelmed and expertise when we need to build.

The University of Minnesota Solar Vehicle Project could not exist without our sponsors. We are proud to represent every company on this page because of their commitment to our development as students, engineers, and leaders. Every day we get to work with a real solar car, we are grateful for their contributions.

Here, we present our sponsors, organized by their donation level and sorted alphabetically. If you would like to invest in the first cruiser class team in America, take a look at our Sponsor Information Brochure. Contact us at svp@umn.edu if you have any other questions about sponsorship.
