Impero offers a consolidated suite of network management, online safety and classroom tools, designed to support IT teams, empower teachers and protect students. Supporting compliance with the Children’s Internet Protection Act, Impero provides an additional layer of monitoring alongside traditional internet filtering.

Passionate about creating a positive DigCit movement, Impero is delighted to be involved in this year’s DigCit Summit, which aligns perfectly to its business goals. Focused on fostering a culture of good digital citizenship, Impero helps schools and districts to educate students on responsible online behaviour. Real-time monitoring flags up potentially harmful or inappropriate behavior, empowering educators to safeguard as necessary.

Brain Pop

BrainPOP creates digital resources including animated movies, student creation and reflection tools, learning games, and interactive quizzes, for use both in and out of the classroom. Our offerings include BrainPOP Jr. (K-3), BrainPOP (available in English, Spanish, Mandarin, and French), BrainPOP ESL, and our newest FREE subscription of Digital Citizenship resources.

We are thrilled to be included in the 2017 DigCitSummit with its strong emphasis on students' roles in society’s ongoing effort to use new technologies in safe, responsible, and positive ways. Conversations begun here will no doubt have lasting value, and we look forward to this unique opportunity.

Social Assurity (PRNewsfoto/Social Assurity LLC)

We believe a thoughtful approach to social media can influence a student’s prospects when it comes to college and scholarships and later as a tool for career and other life opportunities. Our expertise is teaching students how to create a compelling, authentic digital presence. It helps them distinguish themselves and tell their story: their diversity, personal successes and challenges, their unique interests and talents, and it helps them stand out in a competitive academic environment.

Why and How to become a Sponsor

There is an explosive energy around the DigCitSummit right now. Summits are happening or being planned in several countries around the world -- in Africa, Australia, Europe, and North/South/Central America. Being part of this event means being part of an exciting Movement and having the opportunity to help create ripples of positive change. Our vision is that it will become the norm for kids and adults to work together to use digital technologies deliberately, for good...and to create more ideas about how that kind of side-by-side learning and experience can happen.

In short, we are looking for brands that care about being part of something bigger than themselves.

There will be no product booths at the Summit. Instead, most organizational sponsors will have a "virtual booth" space on this website where they can include a brief description of their organization AND a statement of purpose -- why they want to be involved in this Movement. We'll give you shoutouts on social media as well, and sponsors donating at the $1000 level or above will receive free ticket or tickets to the event. (See more of the list of benefits in the section below.)

If all the above sounds exciting and interesting to you, read on!

Other ways to get involved as a sponsor:

  1. Sponsor student scholarships for the Summit. Our goal is to get scholarships for 50 students (ages 10-18 or college age). Having youth involved in the Summit is critical to its success! This campaign is especially designed to let individuals get involved in being part of all that is happening, but organizational contributions are welcome as well, especially if your budget is tight.
  2. Helping someone get to the Summit by funding travel is a great way to sponsor! If you want to help sponsor an attendee, you can be recognized at whatever level of monetary support you provide for the attendee (see tiered descriptions below). NOTE: Free Summit tickets will not be issued for travel sponsorships, and EPIK Deliberate Digital will not manage the exchange of funds nor will we issue a tax-deductible receipt for this type of sponsorship. That said, please contact us if you are interested in providing travel funding for a potential attendee but don't know of anyone to help. Beneficiary is responsible to alert us about travel sponsorships in order for recognition benefits to occur. (See our travel & lodging microsite for more information about transportation and hotel options.)
  3. In-kind or customized sponsorships or partnerships will be negotiated on a case-by-case basis. For example, if there is a particular element of the Summit that you want to sponsor specifically, please contact us to discuss. Please note that EPIK makes no guarantees that all proposals will be accepted.

Of course, we encourage all sponsors to watch and use hashtags on social media that are associated with this event and the overall Movement, such as #DigCitSummit and #UseTech4Good. There is a passionate community that is growing around Positive DigCit. We hope you will want to be a part of it.

All donations are tax-deductible. 

Funds will be received and managed by EPIK Deliberate Digital, a Utah-based 501(c)(3).

All funds will go to support DigCitSummit 2017. Any surplus funds will be held for use for the 2018 DigCitSummit (location TBD)

Thank you!
