Sponsor Us

SPONSOR SVI HUDSON VALLEY

For my business as a creative development consultant to socially responsible organizations, SVI 2014 was transformational, both in the way I think about solving my client’s problems, and also how I see my personal role in the space of social impact. The weekend sparked new, actionable ideas and lasting relationships — and I look forward to participating again!
— Bill Miles, Alchemy Creative Group (2014/2015 sponsor)

Why Sponsor Us?

Sometimes good economic sense and altruism walk hand-in-hand. That’s true of the growing number of socially responsible businesses that keeping popping up in the Hudson Valley and around the world, and that’s true of sponsorship of SVI Hudson Valley.

The people and organizations behind this retreat are some of the original thinkers and doers of the social enterprise movement.

  • Quality vs. quantity: We attract solid values-driven entrepreneurs and innovative nonprofit leaders who are having (or will have) real impact in their organizations and their communities.
  • And we create a more intimate, immersive experience over the weekend than typical conferences, which means deeper exposure for your brand.
  • Our reach goes farther, though: We promote to the social change sector throughout the Hudson Valley and New York metro area and beyond — via email blasts, social media, advertising, and via our partners.
  • Because we have such great partners and notable presenters, held at one of the world's premier educational retreat centers, we generate a respectable amount of attention. Which means more positive exposure for your organization.
  • You just might meet some folks at SVI Hudson Valley that will have a lasting impact on your organization.

And then there’s the big picture. Sponsor us because:

  • You're helping us to play a role, however small, in having positive social impact in the world.
  • You are committed to a vibrant community, a healthy economy, and the right kind of transformational innovation, growth and impact and want to be a part of any initiative that fosters that worldview.

Who Will Attend?

A curated mix of social entrepreneurs and innovative business-builders and nonprofit leaders, the dreamers and doers, the thinkers, the visionary world-changers, creators and catalysts
