Underwrite Participation in Invent for Humanity

The Center for Applied Innovation plans to feature 20 technology providers and 20 needs organizations at the Invent for Humanity Technology Transfer Exchange Fair on January 24-25, 2012 in Geneva, Switzerland. In many cases, the technology providers and needs organizations do not have the economic resources to attend and participate in this event.

To address this need, your organization could:

  • Sponsor the attendance and participation of a needs organization or technology provider. $7,800 covers the costs of travel for two attendees, as well as the shipment of booth materials.
  • Generally fund Product or Enterprise Campaigns for deployment at one of the following levels: Bronze – up to $25,000; Silver – up to $50,000; Gold – up to $100,000; or Platinum – exceeding $100,000.
  • Nominate organizations currently supported by your company for participation in Invent for Humanity, and/or contribute your company’s appropriate technologies meeting Invent for Humanity criteria.

For more about underwriting, please contact Kristi Stathis.
