Why Sponsor the Summit Participants

As the face of application threats continues to grow, we need your help. This February, we begin a new era of our mission by convening at the OWASP Global Summit in Lisbon, Portugal. Many of our attendees fund their own way in order to spend a week of research and talks that will shape the next iteration of tools and deliverables for the global security community to share. As part of this effort, we need your financial support in order to get all of our top leaders present. This personal request is one that asks you to consider any monetary support for mobilizing our global leadership community to convene in less than a month. Please act today and you'll help to support the ongoing efforts of a growing non-profit that has given so much and is ready to give much more through its tools, research, frameworks, and much more.

How Can You Help?

As of January 10, 2011, after having spent $110,000 for organizing our global summit, we are still short of our goal. The current shortfall is what separates many of our top leaders/ contributors from attending the Summit in February. If you are a company and would like to sponsor a leader, essentially, this can be done via a pledge today. Funds are used to subsidize their travel and accommodations to and from the week-long working session. As a team, we need to get our leaders and top contributors to partake in this event. If your company or government agency has ever benefited from our efforts, please consider supporting them.

Here are some of the leaders/ contributor that need your support in order to be present at the Summit:
