DeadlyScience is the Australian nonprofit entering the Formula 1 stage with Smartsheet’s SponsorX initiative


Australian nonprofit DeadlyScience will participate in the Sponsor X initiative led by Smartsheet, sponsor of McLaren Racing, the enterprise platform for dynamic work.

Starting with the DeadlyScience logo replacing Smartsheet’s logo on McLaren MCL36 race cars during the Australian Grand Prix April 8-10, Smartsheet will help raise awareness and make donations to benefit DeadlyScience’s mission.

DeadlyScience is a non-profit organization that provides remote Australian communities with STEM resources and mentorship. Started after proud Kamilaroi man Corey Tutt discovered that some schools were completely under-resourced and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children were discouraged from pursuing STEM because of it, DeadlyScience has since shipped over 20 000 STEM books and resources to over 100 communities across Australia. .


“DeadlyScience is a small team with a big mission: to bring STEM education to kids who have so much potential, but just need someone to believe in them,” said Corey Tutt, Founder and CEO of DeadlyScience. “It means the world to Smartsheet to donate this sponsorship and believe in the important work we do. When kids see DeadlyScience on the car, they’ll know it represents them.

Sponsor X reinvents what a sponsorship can do in the name of what Smartsheet believes in: work that matters. The first of its kind in Formula 1 history, Smartsheet will extend the benefits of its partnership with McLaren Racing to put a worthy cause first. Along with logo visibility on McLaren cars and featured social media posts, the nonprofit will receive perpetual Smartsheet software licenses, consultant hours and free training to improve teamwork and collaboration so that their work can change the world even more.

Since many nonprofits are so often constrained by resources, Smartsheet has also created a set of free nonprofit templates to help them manage their programs so they can dedicate more funds than they collect for their mission.

“Smartsheet has revolutionized the way we do business, and now they’re doing the same with how they activate their sponsorship; its benefit for Formula 1,” said Zak Brown, CEO of McLaren Racing. “McLaren is proud of the work what DeadlyScience is doing to inspire a new generation of scientists Sponsor X is a bold way to pursue progress – an idea that resonates with everyone at McLaren.

“Driving meaningful change requires serious commitment, bold action and a platform that everyone can use to make a difference. That’s why we launched Sponsor X,” said Mark Mader, CEO of Smartsheet. “At Smartsheet, we believe in helping create a world where everyone can thrive. The pursuit of social progress anchors us in a greater purpose. We are so impressed with the work Corey and DeadlyScience are doing. with children across Australia. They are a remarkable representation of the impact we hope to have when we use our voice and resources to amplify changemakers across the world.
