G3Box Raising Funds to Send First Maternity Clinic to Kenya

20130408100433-g3box-FINAL_LOGO_adjustWe are very pleased to let our community know about some great progress that has been made by a startup here in Phoenix called G3Box.  What is G3Box?

“G3Box converts steel shipping containers into medical clinics. We passionately pursue healthcare concerns around the world with a commitment to integrity, humility, and collaboration. We Generate Global Good.”

They hit a major milestone this weekend when they raised enough money to ship their first526595_461714910568706_1510356826_n clinic to Kenya Africa.  But they are still raising more money to help them deliver an even better solution.

We at PADT really like this startup for a simple reason: they have developed an efficient, practical, and well engineered solution to a real world problem that has a positive impact on the world.  We also like the fact that the company came out of ASU and that one of the key players is a part time PADT employee, Susanna Young.

If you find their idea as compelling as we do, then maybe you can help fund them to get their real clinic into the hands of people who need it.

PADT’s very own Susanna Young Named as one of 2012’s Top Young Entrepreneurs by The Arizona Republic

imageMany PADT employees were looking through their newspaper (or browsing it online) and saw our very own Susanna Young made this years list of the Valley’s top Young Entrepreneurs.

Susanna worked as an intern at PADT while she was going to ASU and still works part time when she is not trying to make the world a better place by building G3Box into a viable company.  If you don’t know about their effort to make medical clinics from steel shipping containers, check out the website and learn more.
