Rob Weber supports BRIDGEdotMN

by The TECHdotMN Team


Minnesota tech entrepreneur and investor Rob Weber has recently made a $1k donation to BRIDGEdotMN, saying:

“I donated because I believe that every child should have an opportunity to succeed, and having basic computing power and an Internet connection can have a dramatic impact on young lives. While growing up in Brooklyn Park in the early to mid-nineties, my two brothers and I saved up our money and purchased a low end PC with Internet access.

We took turns using our PC throughout all hours of the evening for a couple of years, building up our first web start-ups. We used the cash flow from these start-ups to pay our tuition at college and ultimately provide the initial seed capital which enabled us to largely bootstrap W3i when we founded it in the Spring of 2000.”

Thank you Rob Weber for supporting BRIDGEdotMN!

100% of the funds will be used to provide Minneapolis 5th grader Lena with a new computer, mobile broadband and professional training. BRIDGEdotMN is a collaboration among TECHdotMN, Project for Pride in Living (PPL), CTEP Ameri Corps and Mobile Citizen, formed to equip local kids with technology resources that increase their digital literacy skills.

Rob Weber joins a growing list from the Minnesota tech community (Augusoft, Clockwork, Tony Abena, LeadPlayer, Software for Good, Jeff Hinck, StickyAlbums, Livefront) who are making a positive impact through BRIDGEdotMN.

For $1,000 you can provide technology resources for a pre-qualified student in need and forever change their course. Contact us now to learn more about how you or you company can support BRIDGEdotMN.
