FLEXspace sponsors

FLEXspace offers the opportunity for sponsors to promote your company, products, and services, and to authentically connect and engage with the FLEXspace community that includes those who are involved in projects to refresh, renovate, or build new learning spaces in academic settings.

A tiered sponsorship structure offers a range of opportunities for individual consultants and small professional services firms such as designers and architects, plus all sizes of corporate and institutional sponsors.  Please contact us to discuss how you can join and support our community!
