Dear board members,

please find our request below/attached.

as per response from Laura:
"As you may know I can not approve funding for events, nor I can decide
whether this is consider a Global Event. Once this is approved  by the
board, I will be more that happy to assist you in any capacity."

Can you take some time during the next board meeting to review and approve
our request for funding and for the summit to be treated as a global event?

Happy to take any questions prior to or during the meeting (if the time
zone permits).

Kind regards,

Matt, Andrew, Laura,

I submitted the OWASP Summit 2018 in OCMS (pdf attached).

Budget proposal attached as well.
Please see the notes:
*We request a seeding fund from the foundation of 100.000 USD.*
*This will allow us to contract the venue and lodging (similar to 2017).*
*For this we request the non-used 50K seed fund of 2017 and an additional
50K for 2018.*
*We intend to recover the 100K seed fund with sponsors and income tickets.*
*We additionally request to re-use the 100K seed fund to cover the travel
of selected working-session organizers and participants from the OWASP
*Our aim is to at least break even overall on the event in 2018 (which we
already did in 2017).*
*We will sell more tickets by creating an additional OWASP User Track for
organisations or individuals to participate and exchange experiences and
use cases of using OWASP best practices. **Given the success and outcome of
2017, together with a longer preparation time, we also intend to attract
higher sponsorship and will create ""villa-booths"" for sponsors to
showcase their technical expertise.*
Additionally we *request for the summit to be recognized as a global event*
for the foundation to have increased staff support.

We have put in the option at the venue (same as this year: it is perfect
for the summit and close to an international air hub - London Heathrow).
*Can you arrange for the venue contract to be signed (see other email
forwarded by Matt).*

Thank you,
Seba, Dinis, Francois
