Patrons & Brand Representation

Sponsorship with SOLO 100 means that you align your Brand with a world first polar expedition with historical marketing value - combining environmental and education programs captured by award winning documentary teams.

Your investment will showcase your own ideas and commitment to climate action and in turn will allow the journey of 100 days to become a reality.

Aside from exposing your brand on equipment, clothing, the official website and all social media we can also personalise the marketing opportunity for you. With this we will assign our own SOLO 100 support to understand what your own requirements are.

A personal video message from the journey and live talks for your company are all part of the tailored made approach to delivering you maximum exposure. Speak to our team to find out the extent of what we can deliver. This is only the tip of the ice berg!
