C2S2 would not be possible without its sponsors. Through their generous contributions, they have enabled the team and its members to push the boundaries of what is possible at the undergraduate level for silicon and system design.

Primary Sponsor

C2S2's primary sponsorship comes from the Shen Fund for Social Impact. The fund is named after Cornell Engineering alumnus David T. Shen (Class of '89), managing director of the private equity group Olympus Capital Holdings Asia. The fund is targeted to bring together new student teams under a faculty member's mentorship to address significant social challenges in society today through novel and/or advanced engineering solutions. C2S2 addresses this not only through our partnership with the Lab of Ornithology, but through our contributions back to the open-source chip design ecosystem. The fund generously supports C2S2 over a period of 3 years, and has been the enabler for C2S2 to start as a project team.
