How to become a partner?
Partnership is open to organizations and companies of all sizes. Membership is divided into two key segments:
- Core Members
- Partner Members
Core Membership is limited to AI infrastructure software companies or projects only. Joining the Alliance requires a recommendation or invite from a current member in good standing of the Core. Membership is granted by a simple majority vote of the current governing alliance.
Core Members must have software that is open source or open core, though SaaS based services, proprietary add-ons and components are permitted. Single, public cloud only SaaS systems are not permitted at this time.
Partner membership is open to organizations and companies that are connected with Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML), in particular service providers, data scientists, research and development centers, AI hardware companies, non-AI infrastructure software companies and projects, universities, community groups, media hubs and more.
SaaS companies, closed source platforms and cloud providers, as well as teams building a robust ecosystem for AI with powerful APIs are equally welcome in the Alliance as partners.
If you are selected for the Alliance you’ll be given instructions for your legal authorization to join via your authorized representative.
Joining the Alliance
If you are approved or invited to join the alliance then the process to become a member or partner is simple. Send a read-receipt email to infra [AT] ai-infrastructure.org from an authorized representative for you, your company or organization with the subject line: “Partner Permission” and the following text in the body of the email:
“I grant the AI Infrastructure Alliance the non-exclusive right to use [my/our] logo, mark, or likeness (“Logo”) on the Partner page of the Alliance Website (“Website”). I also grant the right to mention [myself, my company or organization] as a partner in communications (“Communications”), such as, but not limited to, blog posts, podcasts, articles, interviews, press releases, and emails.”
Please replace [my/our] with “my” if you are an individual or “our” if you are an organization/company. Replace [myself, my company or organization] with the appropriate designation as well.
Please include your full name and title in the email.
Leaving the Alliance is simple as well. Simply send a read-receipt email to the same address, from your authorized representative with the subject line “Revoke my membership in the Alliance” and we will cease using your logo and drop you from all subsequent materials and communities.
There is no fee for core members or partnerships with the Alliance at this time, though the Alliance may consider fees at the recommendation of the governing council for membership at a later date.
