    DRIVE BY SUPPORT – We need whiteboards. Creative ideas are born on whiteboards. We like ones with wheels. The reward at this level is also a key part of our marketing strategy. We want to turn every steel vehicle in Cleveland into a rolling advertisement. You get a really cool StartMart magnetic bumper sticker. Not appropriate for plastic cars, but might work on your refrigerator (which has wheels). Visit StartMart to claim.
