"Our services, what we give away for free, are going to cost students hundreds if not thousands of dollars if they go out to educate themselves through the private cloud," Grewal said. "And everything comes with a cost on the back end, so hopefully, with the accelerator's help we can get connected to corporate sponsors who understand our mission and support it." Current donors include Google, City of Sacramento, Western Digital Foundation, Microsoft, Quest Technology Management and hundreds of individuals. Yellow Circle is seeking additional donors to meet its goal of supporting 100,000 students. Yellow Circle is seeking corporate sponsorship for bandwidth usage, electricity cost, and operations. Minimum sponsorship starts at $250 per month.
