Tech Runway Sponsorship
Donate to FAU Tech Runway to be a part of the entrepreneurial spirit flourishing in South Florida. Business ideas conceived by forward-thinking entrepreneurs in the community, and innovative FAU students and faculty, need a place to be cultivated, nurtured and empowered to achieve massive success: FAU Tech Runway.
A South Florida public-private partnership, FAU Tech Runway serves as a core entrepreneurship hub to accelerate technology development and incubate startup companies. Incubation and acceleration take place in a 28,000 square-foot collaborative working space that provides entrepreneurs with a complete ecosystem they can access including an office, training, mentoring and funding for their ventures, from ideation phase through to the scaling stage.
Of course, donations benefit you, too. We are part of a non-profit 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization. Contributions in excess of the fair value of goods and services received by the donor may be tax deductible. Please consult your personal tax advisors.
Here are some of the ways you can support FAU Tech Runway.
Help fund the acquisition of specific capital to further improve our resources and services. FAU Tech Runway’s home in Boca Raton consists of 28,000 square feet of converted warehouse space, a portion of which still requires build-out. Required enhancements and additions include: Hub Café and Lounge, co-working space, Maverick stage.
Contributions to programing will help educate and support entrepreneurs at FAU Tech Runway. You can contribute to our Entrepreneurial Program, mentor or support the investor awards that help with startup cost for the venture companies.
As a sponsor ($5,000 to $10,000 per year, over a five-year term), a donor receives naming rights to FAU Tech Runway’s conference rooms, classrooms, event rooms, training rooms, Hub Café and Lounge or other areas within FAU Tech Runway’s facility. This creates an exceptional opportunity to “make it your own” and to inform the entire community of your significant commitment to our region’s entrepreneurs.
As a Maverick 100 sponsor ($5,000 per year, five-year commitment), you gain recognition on the Donor Wall of Fame and preferred access to all FAU Tech Runway events and seminars. All venture companies will recognize your business as one that directly supports their entrepreneurial efforts.
