See the related Book Page with Sponsorship Levels. Do we want to revisit these in light of the new program? 

My thought:
Perhaps a level of sponsorship that is tied to the projects themselves--so "Sponsor and support ONE team program = $10k, Sponsor and support 5 teams = $50k, etc."



Project: !Governance » Adjunct Online (bring the Incubator live)

This should be adapted to the new incubator model of Corporate, Charitable, and Investment.

For that adaptation, I'm looking at the budget for the Accelerator, and seeing some areas that would be easy to make into sponsorship levels:

  • Sponsor the Summit (venue, travel, promo, etc.)
  • Sponsor the Scenario
  • Sponsor Hackathon

What about creating a sponsor level for a particular type of mentor or mentoring program? For example

  • Business Development (I support the biz dev function of mentorship, could be entrepreneurship dollars)
  • Marketing and Packaging (Corporate support of marketing / package design, etc. by in-kind service donation to the team)



The main things we're needing to sponsor are the support team and the stipends of the teams. With that said, I don't see this sort of tiered sponsorship as working. Perhaps orders of magnitude instead?

$50 is a fancy person

$500 is a really fancy person

$5000 I say, old chap

$50,000 Moustaches for everyone!

We're making this a topic at the next advisory board meeting, where we will all be given moustaches.

I think this is pretty ok where it's at, going as an ad-hoc process.
