How CAN i get backed?
Backed By supports the large and small projects that somehow strive to make our everyday life a bit more inclusive. The submissions should have a clear purpose and state why, and in what way, a collaboration with Dr. Denim is needed. Backed By provides not only financial support but could also sponsor with products or supervision. All applications will be evaluated continuously.
