Sponsor information for the Open Hardware Summit

Pt 10275

The Open Hardware Summit is approaching, it’s the day before Maker Faire NYC – September 23rd. This is one the first conferences devoted to open source hardware (celebrating the draft of the OSHW definition). Like most “open” efforts the conference will rely on the community to support its efforts, it will be what we all make it. If you plan to attend, or just want to see open hardware evolve more here is the sponsor information for the Open Hardware Summit.

Sponsorship for the Open Hardware Summit is still open! By sponsoring the Open Hardware Summit you’ll be fostering the open source hardware movement. This is the first conference of its kind, where open source hardware producers are coming together to share knowledge about bringing open hardware to market, and solving issues around open design and licensing. Together we will gain momentum as a team, defining a revolution and signing a new definition. Special thanks to our sponsors who have already donated.

Please consider sponsoring this non-profit event.  Here’s what you need to know about sponsoring:

  • Sponsorship for cash donations are capped at $1000. By keeping the sponsorship playing field open and accessible, it ensures that smaller companies can show their support too. If your company would like to sponsor more than $1000, we welcome in-kind donations such as lunch, name tags, a cocktail hour, etc. Please contact the organizers to discuss your donation.
  • Sponsors will be given love – we will thank you individually at the event, on the website, and your logo will appear at the entrance of the event. In addition, you will receive two tickets to attend the event.
  • This is a non-profit event. Extra funds from sponsorship will be put toward a scholarship for creating open hardware.

Disclosure, we just donated! If you donate $100 or more email us, we’ll figure out a special thing to send you. We can’t “match” funds – but we’ll send you something!
