“If we are going to solve the world’s most pressing problems, we must put the power of the Web to work – its technologies, its business models, and perhaps most importantly, its philosophies of openness, collective intelligence, and transparency. And to do that, we must take the Web to another level. We can’t afford incremental evolution anymore.”
- Tim O’Reilly and John Battelle, “Web Squared: Web 2.0 Five Years On”
Web 2.0 Expo is about much more than business development and learning useful new skills. It’s about disrupting and changing the system we live in.
We value those who work to better our community, whether that’s the local area or in the world community. Because of this, we are again setting up a Non-Profit Pavilion. This Web 2.0 Expo tradition has hosted such organizations as ChangingthePresent, Amoration, Creative Commons, Donorschoose, Knowmore, Social Actions, USIBA and the University of Denver CIS Program.
If you’re a non-profit organization that is using Web 2.0 technologies to support your cause, mission, or community goals, we invite you to apply for a spot in our Pavilion.
We will choose 10 non-profits to participate in the Pavilion (located on the Expo floor). Each organization will be supplied with a booth space, on-site branding and inclusion in the events guide, completely free of charge.
To apply, fill out the form below. The deadline to apply is September 27.
Organizations must be a registered 501c3 to participate. Space is limited to 10 non-profits. An internal Web 2.0 Expo committee will select the booth recipients and announcements will be made the week of September 28.
