MISI Sponsorship Opportunities

MISI Sponsorship Opportunities

MISI continues to create some of the most exciting events and programs in Maryland. We would like to increase the number of events and the quality of the events. Please review the sponsorship opportunities and let us know how you can help. You can always donate to our General Activities Fund or a Specific Program Fund like IMAGINE.

MISI Cyber Conversation and Coffee (C3) at DreamPort

MISI's Cyber Conversation and Coffee is a twice-monthly networking event at our DreamPort facility. It is becoming a must-attend event for the cyber community. This is a great time and place to meet with MISI Directors Karl Gumtow and Armando Seay to discuss how you, your company, or your product can help solve our customers' most pressing problems. The event starts at 7:30am and lasts until at least 10am.

MISI's Weekly Coffee and Snacks Sponsorship

MISI's provides free coffee, soda and snacks every day. We do get individual contributions, but our Sponsors have really covered the cost of the coffee, soda and snacks since we have opened our first Mission Accelerator®.

Each event has different Sponsorship needs and will be detailed in the announcement. The sponsorship levels are provided below.
