Sponsorship Opportunities for Tech Month Chicago 2018

The Tech Month Chicago platform is a one-month awareness calendar of local technology industry events that are promoted to the general public every September. Last year we had over half a million impressions on our Social Media campaign, highly visible ads in 8 major Chicago news outlets, and more than 100 events on our calendar.

In our third year, Tech Month Chicago is poised for significant growth and we are offering an excellent sponsorship package that will help organizations like yourself achieve exposure and penetration into the local tech industry as well as the general public in the Chicagoland area. You’ll also get the added good vibes that result from supporting such a large scale diversity and awareness initiative.

This year we’re looking for tech companies and other appropriate organizations to sponsor us, and in exchange, sponsors will receive the following benefits:

  • Your logo included on over 10,000 posters and handbills distributed in a citywide street marketing campaign that will cover college campuses, tech venues, and high visibility areas in Chicago neighborhoods
  • Your logo and links placed on our website on our events calendar page
  • Multiple mentions in our social media campaign
  • A professional podcast interview focused on just your company
  • An expertly written blog post about your company published on our Tech Month Chicago Website
  • A professional press release regarding your sponsorship

For what sponsors receive, this sponsorship package is an excellent value at the affordable rate of $1,500. The podcast interview alone is worth more than we’re asking. Our current radio broadcast, Tech Scene Chicago, is a successful radio broadcast focused on tech events, that has 10,000 listeners tuning in for every show. You can rest assured that our team’s interviewing and post-production skills will represent your company well and your staff will have an excellent experience. With your sponsorship, your company will be a featured guest on our new podcast that launches later this fall, and as well your logo will be featured on our top-rated events calendar this September.

Our goal in asking for sponsorship is to become the best partner your company has. Take a moment to ask yourself what that would entail. If there is something else we can do to help serve your needs, please let us know, and we will gladly work with you to create a custom exposure package.

We want the whole city of Chicago to be able to celebrate our vibrant technology ecosystem here, but we do need some help to get the word out. We are looking to get five sponsors this year. If we can do that we will be able to expand our coverage of the city. Can we count you in? Please let me know by Noon on August 20th. I am happy to schedule a time for a discussion as well. Thanks in advance for your support.
