Becoming an XBMC Foundation Sponsor

Kodi is a fairly expensive operation to maintain, and as such, we are always happy to welcome new sponsors to the fold, as additional sponsorships tend to make it easier to further development and spread the word. To become an XBMC Foundation sponsor, any organization may simply contact the XBMC Foundation at contact (AT) kodi.tv.

With that said, the XBMC Foundation remains a non-profit organization, and as such, we would like very much to combine simple financial growth with definite software and community growth. Keeping that in mind, we ask that all potential sponsors answer the following brief questions in their contact email:

  1. In a paragraph, could you tell us a bit about your organization?
  2. Why would you like to become an XBMC Foundation sponsor?
  3.  What efforts have you made, if any, to advance Open Source Software generally and Kodi specifically?
  4. What level of XBMC Sponsorship are  you interested in?

Sponsorship Levels

DevCon Sponsor

Each year, the XBMC Foundation hosts a single Developers Conference sometime in early spring, typically in May. Each year we are happy to accept a single DevCon Sponsor to help defray the costs of the Conference. The DevCon sponsor will have its name included on all DevCon t-shirts, including any DevCon t-shirts the organization determines to sell to the general public. The DevCon sponsor will also have its name included in any Conference banners and the Conference and next Beta 1 blog posts. Finally, the DevCon Sponsor will receive all the perks of being a Diamond Sponsor.

The cost of the DevCon Sponsorship is negotiable.
