Pledge Commitment Form

  • Thank you for your interest in becoming a TechTown Pledge Company!

    The following form should be completed by one of your company’s TechTown Equity Champions. Your Equity Champions are your Executive Champion (sponsor) or your Internal Equity Champion (day-to-day lead). These are the individuals who have been identified by your company, are committed to participating in regular TechTown stakeholder sessions (90 minutes, every other month), and are the main point of contact for other TechTown programming updates.
  • Contact Information
