Before this year, any discerning analog photographer had to mail their film to one of the few national labs for film processing. Seeing the need, the team at Fort Wayne Film Lab opened their doors hoping to provide a local film lab so photographers in the midwest could develop their film without mailing it out. Now, they’re processing multiple rolls of film a day, providing a better, local solution for analog photographers in the Midwest. As a recipient of a micro-grant, Noah and his team will be able to purchase a new scanner so they can serve more customers with a faster turnaround.
Daniel Hart – 3D Printing Prototype
3D printers have been around for a few years, but Daniel Hart discovered that the ones available lack innovation when it comes to the consumer market. He would like to create a line of printers that are easy to use, high-quality, and low cost, making them usable for just about anyone. With a micro-grant from Fortitude, Daniel can invest in new parts for his products.
