Sponsorship

Smart Seeds is a global innovation program focused on generating fresh ideas to tackle complex infrastructure challenges.

The Opportunity

Since 2013, when the first industry-wide Smart Seeds program was run in Melbourne, more than 300 young professionals have participated in the program globally. Collectively, they have generated more than 60 fresh ideas and inspired over 1200 industry leaders at Showcase Events.

Building on the the success of previous years, Smart Seeds will run in cities across Australia, New Zealand, the UK and North America. With over 20 events taking place between March and May 2017, Smart Seeds is taking off globally.

By taking up City, National or Global Sponsorship, your organisation will demonstrate their commitment to collaboration, innovation and the development of young professionals in your industry.
