That's a interesting offer but depends really on what the company's 
expertise is:

* If they are willing to donate hardware or resources, refer 

* Bring their applications into the Fedora repository (and EPEL) if they 
are open source

* Assist with testing releases, providing feedback and patches for what 
they consider important at a fraction of the cost required to push 
changes into a commercial product

* Porting. http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Architectures

I would suggest asking them to talk to the Fedora Board and establish a 
working relationship that is mutually favourable.


Hope that helps.
