The Open Hardware Summit is made possible through the generosity of sponsors — individuals, hackerspaces, businesses large and small — who recognize the importance of an ongoing conversation about the Open Hardware Movement. Your donations allow us to keep ticket prices low, and help ensure that the summit remains accessible to all open hardware enthusiasts.

Please consider showing your support by pledging at one of the levels below. This year’s sponsor packet contains more detailed information on the benefits available at each pledge level, and can be downloaded here: Sponsorship Packet

This year, we are excited to offer funders at the Fanatic+ level the opportunity to fund a named travel fellowship to bring an open practitioner to the conference who would not normally be able to come — please see the packet for more information.
