Perpetual Innovation Fund to Give Away 3D Printers and Training

The Digital Harbor Foundation (DHF), a non-profit youth-oriented makerspace, announces the launch of the DHF Perpetual Innovation Fund, a new initiative to support 3D printing entrepreneurship in schools and organizations across the country.

The new program is designed to make technology and training accessible for any educator who wants to jumpstart 3D printing in their school or organization. Interested educators are paired with a mentor and asked to submit a simple business plan for how they will use a 3D printer to create a self-sustaining youth enterprise by printing and selling 3D printed objects. After educators receive their 3D printers and training, they are asked to contribute a portion of the profits from their youth enterprises back into the fund to support another educator’s printer and training.
