Each summer, the PresenTense Institute invites foundations, organizations, and communities to invest in PresenTense Institute Named Chairs, in order to sponsor innovation in the field that they most care about. These Named Chairs represent opportunities for sixteen leading social entrepreneurs from around the world to develop and launch their ventures at the PresenTense Institute in Jerusalem.
A sponsor provides that chair’s highly publicized title and becomes a partner in advancing social entrepreneurship in general, as well as in their specific field. Sponsors get a chance to increase their return on investment in research and development in their field through developing a relationship with a new venture—increasing impact and gaining access to innovators, entrepreneurs, and future leaders.
Why the Chair Works
