About Mozilla

We exist to protect the internet as a global public resource, open and accessible to all. Mozilla is the maker of Firefox, the open-source browser that more than 300 million people rely on for a safer, saner online life. But a healthy internet requires more than great products. So Mozilla also supports bright minds and big ideas through our fellowships and awards. We publish critical research in our annual Internet Health Report. We run global advocacy campaigns around issues like online privacy and net neutrality. And we connect open internet leaders at events like MozFest.

About Mozilla Festival (MozFest)

Celebrating its first year in Amsterdam, MozFest is the world’s leading event for the internet health movement. The week-long festival showcases world-changing ideas and technology through workshops, talks, and interactive sessions. Each year, over 3,000 attendees from around the world and across disciplines gather to discuss, debate, and build an internet that uplifts humanity. Our featured speakers include individuals like Zeynep Tufekci, Julia Angwin, Audrey Tang, and Brian Behlendorf, who are leading their respective fields and changing the way we interact with the world. Watch main-stage talks from MozFest 2019, or browse the MozFest blog.

The festival is known for its community feel, the diverse audience it attracts and covering a huge range of topics often eschewed by more ‘pure tech’ conferences.

Why Sponsor MozFest

MozFest is a unique opportunity to partner with Mozilla, show your commitment to a healthy internet, and connect with thousands of like-minded thinkers. If you believe in a saner, more private, and human-centered digital experience online, there is no better place to spotlight those values than MozFest. Covered by NPR, WIRED UK, The Guardian, and other top publications, MozFest provides ample opportunities for exposure. As we celebrate our inaugural year in Amsterdam, sponsors have the chance to interact with the people, projects, and code that will shape the internet in years to come.

MozFest is good at both leading the conversation into the broader interdisciplinary field (e.g. education, journalism, science) and illuminating technology practices and their implementation.

It was a true honor to be part of this year's Festival. Working in the same team with talented friends from diverse countries and backgrounds was really humbling. It may sound cliché- but for a latino women like me, this experience was something I never dreamt of...being part of the organization team was something special. Thanks to amazing people at Mozilla my life has changed for good, and so the life of many others in this lovely community.
