As one of I2SL’s most significant initiatives to date, Labs2Zero will require significant industry investment and support. To make this ambitious program a reality, I2SL seeks immediate funding as well as technical input to ensure a balanced and sustainable program suitable for the laboratory community.
2022-2023 Labs2Zero Founding Sponsorship Program
Founding sponsors who choose to support the program at the outset will receive a variety of benefits. Higher-level sponsors will be granted “right of first refusal” to exclusively sponsor program elements and have their organization associated with that aspect of the program, along with related benefits. Furthermore, Gold level sponsors and higher will secure seats on the various councils organized to develop Labs2Zero programmatic aspects. And for sponsors that wish to commit funds at the outset to three or more years of support, I2SL will provide a 20 percent discount, as described below. Payments received in 2022 will automatically apply to 2023 as an annual payment.
With the help of founding sponsors, I2SL anticipates developing a variety of specific program elements, to which these sponsors can choose to direct their support in future years. Read the Labs2Zero Sponsorship Prospectus.
Labs2Zero Sponsorship Levels and Benefits
|Sponsor Level Costs||Diamond||Platinum||Gold||Silver|
|Minimum annual sponsorship level cost||$50,000||$30,000||$15,000||$7,500|
|Upfront payment for three-year sponsorship
Note this represents a 20 percent annual discount.
For Founding Sponsors who sign up the first year and commit to future years' contributions at same level, they can enjoy the same benefits of that level, but can contribute 20 percent less in future years.
