BECOME A MEMBER OF THE I3 CONSORTIUM
The I3 is an open consortium that includes companies, government entities, academic institutions, as well as individuals. Everyone is encouraged to join and contribute what they can to our efforts to develop an open IOT data infrastructure
The I3 Consortium is a functional organization working to create deliverables that serve a larger community of interest. Successful realization of the I3 vision requires that all members actively participate in the process. When an organization applies to join the I3 Consortium, they need to identify how they intend to contribute to the consortium.
The I3 Consortium is a lean, grass roots organization. We value contributions in the form of hardware, software, services, and even participatory labor but we also need money. Please consider making a financial contribution to the I3 effort. Your generous contribution allows us to accelerate our efforts to realize a vibrant and dynamic IOT world.
$500 suggested for Individual Members
$5,000 for Restricted Organizations
$20,000 or more for more Established Organizations
The I3 Consortium accepts in-kind contributions that may help it achieve its vision. These contributions might include hardware, software, services, development talent, or marketing support. The abilities of Consortium’s members vary widely so it is important for planning purposes that each member describes their expected contribution to the consortium each year. By telling the Consortium about your expected participation, we can better plan the Consortium’s activities.
