Even though a lobbyist also thinks so, I think there's some promise in the idea of subsidizing or even outright funding your Mars rover via corporate sponsorship.

The downside of corporate sponsorship, though, is the risk of corporate control. You need a way to ensure that post-landing decisions are still 100% science-driven, and I don't know how you do that when you have a Nike swoosh visible in every shot.
