Each year, Revolve NTNU gets bigger and better. One of the reasons we grow each year is because of our sponsors. Let’s not forget that they are a part of our team, as well as the students who build the car. Without our sponsors, we would not have had the opportunity to produce high-quality parts for the different systems on our car. We have several different types of sponsors, ranging from everything from software to mechanical parts to autonomous systems. We are so grateful for all of the help we get from them. They are always there if we need help exploring new concepts or improve our designs. We can always count on them to help us if we are in need. To all of our sponsors, thank you for being a part of Revolve NTNU Team 2018!
