Shine a Light

We here at OpenHelix of course think we’ve got a compelling story as a company and as individuals. Well, American Express and iVillage are having a program, Shine a Light, to highlight small companies that have great stories and contribute to their communities. The company that gets highlighted will receive 100,000 and marketing support from AmEx. We have been nominated. We are working to find creative ways to fund our operations and to continue to provide really necessary training and outreach on open source tools in bioinformatics. To be considered for the vote, OpenHelix would need 50 people (registered) to endorse that nomination–by Sunday. Check out the story and, if you feel so inclined, endorse here:
