How It Worked

Our automated matching platform connected organizations in need of Badger Shields (follow the link below to check out the design!) with manufacturers that committed to producing them. Our platform considered urgency, order size, manufacturer production rates, and geographic location and aimed to produce matches in a fair and equitable manner. We were a match-maker only and did not handle billing or payment. We encourage all parties to perform due diligence before completing transactions.
