Funding the Expedition
The Ice Maiden team are looking for support from corporate investors to make this ambitious challenge a reality. With your help, they hope to inspire women of all ages to find their own challenge, shift their boundaries and succeed.
The British Army has already committed a significant level of funding, but the team are looking for mutually beneficial corporate sponsorship that will cover the remaining costs.
the Ice Maiden team can provide unique and inspirational talks or workshops to your staff.
WOMEN IN THE WORKPLACE
All of the team are serving in the Army and are used to being a minority in a male-dominated and hierarchical environment. They have both been members of, and led, teams of men on operations and learned how to make their voice heard, in order to succeed.
Publicising your support for the expedition can have a direct impact on the recruitment of women, showing that your company is committed to fostering female achievement and improving male:female employment ratios.
Awareness of your brand in military circles could aid the recruitment of ex-military personnel at all levels.
The team would proudly display your branding on their equipment and reference it in expedition media and publicity. One title sponsor would be offered the opportunity to rename the expedition, adding their prefix to ‘Ice Maiden’.
The team would be happy to use sponsors’ products on the ice and provide feedback for research and development purposes.
EXTENSIVE MEDIA COVERAGE
Including a possible documentary, national, international and regional press. See below.
They will post live updates from Antarctica to their (or your) social media channels, helping their/your audience to follow the expedition in real-time.
A series of fundraising events will give sponsors the opportunity to network with each other, military decision makers and the team in unique and prestigious locations.
Your staff will be invited to join the Ice Maidens on one of their training weekends to experience the physical challenges (to a greater or lesser extent!) and learning how the team stay motivated. The aims of the weekend will be tailored to your specific agenda
