The MIT Solar Electric Vehicle Team is proud to announce the addition of our newest Platinum Sponsor: Konica Minolta.

Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc. (Konica Minolta), a leading provider of advanced imaging and networking technologies for the desktop to the print shop, announced they will be supporting MIT SEVT for the next two years as a Platinum Sponsor.

“Sponsoring the MIT Solar Electric Vehicle Team and their participation in the upcoming World Solar challenge supports our dedication to both innovation and the environment,” said Kevin Kern, Senior Vice President, Marketing, Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc. “The team’s efforts demonstrate what can happen when two important initiatives come together, and as a Platinum Sponsor, this further demonstrates how stakeholders can count on Konica Minolta to continue encouraging advancements in environmental sustainability.”

We look forward to working with Konica Minolta in the future – they recently came by the shop at MIT to present the team with a check!


Also joining the MIT SEVT family as a Silver Sponsor is Lockheed Martin. We met our Lockheed contact at a career fair on campus that SEVT attended, and Lockheed was very interested in supporting the team. Recently, a group of Lockheed executives toured the shop to check out the car and our facility – they left very impressed and vowed to support the team in the future.
