Innovation Design Summit Business Partner Opportunities

Join the Alliance for Strong Families and Communities' Innovation Design Summit participants in learning, problem solving, and developing action plans to ensure a systemic approach to critical social issues.

Benefits of Joining as a Business Partner

Intimate and Interactive Experience
Business partners benefit from the summits' high-engagement design format that allows them to showcase their expertise and solutions to pressing business and social issues. To ensure an intimate, participatory experience, attendance is limited to 125 people. Business partners can take advantage of quality face time to develop and deepen relationships with decision makers in the social sector.

Targeted Industry Connections
Representing the nonprofit and public sectors from around the country, these executive and directorlevel participants are acutely focused on improving the social sector workforce, aligning with your expertise, solutions, and target market.

Start of Something Bigger
Work for the Alliance network won’t stop when the summits end. Participants will identify action steps and plans to be accelerated by the network in the months following the summits, and business partners, participating in their creation, will have an inside track on additional business opportunities.

Proven Track Record
While the Innovation Design Summits offer a new and more in-depth learning and engagement experience, they build upon a history of successful, high-rated Alliance events.

Opportunities to Build Connections

Instead of offering the direct sales environment of an exhibit hall, the Innovation Design Summits provide an interactive setting that fosters better relationships. This is an unprecedented opportunity for business partners to showcase their consultative and solution-based expertise. At the Innovation Design Summits, business partners will work side by side with a network of social sector leaders in the following ways:

Design labs: In addition to presentations from industry leaders, participants will spend most of their time in labs, where they will engage in a facilitated design process. Using human-centered design principles, participants will frame solutions, ideate and storyboard, develop and test prototypes, and plan pilot tests. Join in the process to make connections and lend your expertise and solutions.

Speed geeking: An innovative approach to traditional conference exhibit booths, speed geeking sessions provide business partners with an opportunity for rapid demonstrations to participants during breaks. This is your chance to showcase your expertise and business solutions that tie into the summit’s focus.

Plenary ignite talk: Ignite talks are five-minute presentations with 20 total presentation slides, advancing automatically every 15 seconds. A memorable ignite talk is an effective way to leave the audience hungry for more information.

Power breakfast: Use this intimate opportunity at a reserved table to exchange knowledge, create solutions, and turn new relationships into business opportunities. Continue the conversation from ignite talks or speed geeking sessions to create deeper relationships with participants.

Dine around: Lead a dine around for up to 10 attendees at a local restaurant to enjoy a meal and build relationships. We’ll make the reservation, and you bring your associates.
