Awapatent engages with the outside world partly by supporting a variety of organisations and projects. This is a two-way process and is intended to benefit both parties. Awapatent for its part can offer both financial assistance and skills support through its sponsorship and partnership undertakings.
Promoting enterprise in Benin
For a couple of years now Awapatent has been a sponsor company to SOS Children’s Villages. Awapatent’s donation supports a project in Dassa-Zoumé in Benin, West Africa, where SOS Children’s Villages run a project for families in need. About 225 children are included and they receive education, healthcare, food and psychological support. Their parents benefit from training, advice and microloans to help them start their own businesses. The aim is to help the families to become self-supporting and independent.
Support for Team Rynkeby
Awapatent is a gold sponsor of Team Rynkeby, an organisation supporting leading child cancer charities in Denmark, Finland and Sweden. Team Rynkeby arranges a variety of fund-raising events, the largest being a cycle ride to Paris each summer with 1,000 participants. Started on the initiative of Rynkeby Foods in Denmark in 2001, Team Rynkeby raised more than DKK 23 million in 2013.
Other important collaborations
Awapatent also works closely with a number of universities, business incubators, research villages, business partners and venture capital organisations on projects with the potential to deliver mutual benefit. Our work with sponsorship and partnership includes direct financial support as well as assistance in the form of consulting time.
