From the start, Nolan Chandler and Luke Schooley wanted to express their artistic vision. What started as an art collective has now become a meaningful project influenced by the skateboard community. Life in Perspective Skateboards is currently an apparel company made of unique, dynamic art and designs. In the future, Nolan and Luke hope to manufacture skateboards. Until then, a micro-grant from Farnsworth allows them to build their apparel inventory and create more designs.

No woman should compromise on her wedding dress. Kelitra Auxier noticed that plus-size women were not offered the same unique, beautiful dresses as an average woman. She hopes to open a bridal shop that caters to every woman, offering wedding dresses of every size, color, and pattern so they can have the wedding of her dreams. Her micro-grant from Farnsworth Fund will help her build her inventory and invest in a marketing strategy.
