Xinfab-Xinchejian Relations


Coca-Cola event proposals


  • PreciousPlastic to be funded (they already have a budget they'd like to cover)
  • XinCheJian to get additional funds either directly or through well-funded corporate workshops around projects like PreciousPlastic
  • Always consider resources costs when offering Coca-Cola as XinCheJian (better to commit members first, offer what they already work on)


  • XinCheJian has well defined sponsorships levels and rules
  • XinCheJian is a community, a platform: we don't own members projects so we can't act as gatekeepers
  • Encouraged to include XinCheJian members proposals next to Xinchejian standard sponsorship options

Sponsorships alternatives

  • Explore promote engineering from Coca-Cola (material science, basic research, drinks research)
  • XinCheJian space logo proposal: standard 1 year -> 100K (sell the ability for the community to come up with cool projects like PreciousPlastic)
  • Diana wants less of a marketing campaign and more an actual engineering solution that makes sense ecologically (taking into account energy use)
  • For marketing, may be referred to the CMO (Chief Marketing Officer)
