My team has qualified at the Western Zone level and we now need funds to head to the National finals in Delhi. This crowdfunding campaign is being done to raise those funds. While my goal is INR 25000 we need to raise a total of INR 1L. So please fund my campaign and continue funding it even after i have gone past my goal as we need to raise a total amount of INR 1L.
ABOUT ME AND THIS CAMPAIGN :
My name is MANAS GANDHI and I am in Grade 10 at the Billabong High International school in Thane.
I have undertaken this campaign because my team of F1 in the school known as Xtreme Racers has reached the National finals of the F1 in schools. We were the first runner up in the West Regional Finals of F1 in schools and for the national finals, we are in need of fund for the competition. This platform makes it a lot easier for us to collect funds for the competition.
A little bit of help from your side would be of huge help for us. It would help us in working for the competition as we can get equipped with better financial support for the competition. Once you fund I would be immensely grateful if you can also share my campaign on FB and with some of your friends on your WhatsApp groups. Please tell them that you have funded this campaign and that they can too. Your share will make a big difference for us in the competition.

- Anvay Kudva - Team Manager
- Manas Gandhi - Design and Manufacturing Engineer
- Sidh Palan – Graphics Engineer
- Ayush Agrawal – Resource and Sponsorship Manager
We, Xtreme Racers, have a vision of winning the national finals of F1 in Schools and want to prove to the world that we can be good enough to win the International Finals of F1 in schools.
Some of our sponsors like Glamac, Strugence, Property Junction and Decaltech have been with us along our journey in the West Region Finals but are unfortunately unable to help us out with funding for the National Finals which is why we decided to approach the platform Fueladream and do this crowdfunding initiative.
We would need additional support in areas of travel and accommodation, portfolio printing, installing a pit booth and merchandising. Please help us out and encourage us to win the competition of the National Finals of F1 in Schools.

Risks and challenges
1. As a team competing in a STEM-based competition for the first time, we were not aware of the way we have to plan and work for the competition. We got help and were guided by our honourable coaches.
2. We were unaware about the way in which the newly introduced software known as the Autodesk 360 works. We eventually discovered the functions of the software which in turn helped us create the design which helped us win the first runner up position in the Western regional finals of the competition.
Q1. What will you utilize the funds for?
A1. The funds will be utilized toward team identity, uniforms, travel and accommodation, portfolio printing, installing a pit booth and merchandising.
Q2. Will I receive any tax exemption?
A2. No. Your funding will help us and will go a long way in making us kids who continue to innovate and discover new things.
Q3. How does crowdfunding work?
Crowdfunding in India is a relatively new concept & is growing very quickly.
It’s a concept that allows a large number of funders (like you) to fund an Idea or a cause or event by giving small amounts of money online. Fueladream.com is a crowdfunding platform in India that allows for such a pooling of funds. You can fund innovations , ideas & projects on FuelADream . You can also do a good turn by funding charities and causes through crowdfunding. When you fund a charity it’s more like a donation & you get small innovative rewards like a shout-out on an FB page or a thank you email from the beneficiaries
