Sponsor the Open Source Hardware Summit – we just did!

Sponsorship for the Open Hardware Summit is open! Special thanks to our sponsors who have already donated.

The summit is in its second iteration in partnership with MAKE and Makerfaire at the New York Hall of Science. Last year, 350 people came together to share knowledge about bringing open hardware to market, solving issues around open design, protocols and licensing. Many more people watched online and got involved in the conversation through the forums and twitter. Together with support from you, we have gained more momentum as a team. The definition we signed last year was turned into a license by CERN. We held a logo competition which received 129 submissions and chose one by popular vote. The summit continues to be about the DIY, Maker, small scale (and growing to large) fabrication movements and Open Hardware, and legalese around open source hardware.

By sponsoring the Open Hardware Summit you’ll be fostering the open source hardware movement. Read more about Why to Sponsor.

This is a non-profit event. Extra funds from sponsorship will be put toward a scholarship for creating open hardware.

Would you like to Sponsor? Your donation is tax deductible. Thanks to Eyebeam Art and Technology center, our non-profit fiscal sponsor for handling the finances.

We’re starting out at the “ENTHUSIAST” level of sponsorship – we see if we can think of a clever way to donate more / match funds for others as the date approaches!

  1. Do you think the goodie bags will be equally as awesome as last year. I was planning on going and now from seeing last years goodie bags, I even more tempted.

  2. @matt – totally, the OSHW gang did a great job and will impress again we’re sure!
