During this year’s gala, we will also celebrate innovators who are changing the future for our children.

Urban Tech’s 2016 Innovators will be featured in a special publication entitled, “Celebrating Innovators,” where we will highlight their commitment to our shared mission of changing the game in technology by creating new solutions for students as well as the many under-resourced communities that we serve.

You may sponsor an innovator in several ways:

  • Purchase a table(s) or ticket(s) in honor of the Innovator
  • Feature an Ad in the 21st Anniversary Souvenir Journal in honor of the Innovator
  • Adopt an Urban Tech Partner School in honor of the Innovator
  • Make a contribution in honor of the Innovator
