Have a Venue? Here’s how to donate your venue for tech events in the month of September:
This is a great fit for co-working spaces, offices, restaurants, schools and other large organizations. You are responsible for working out any logistical details with people who contact you about using your space in the month of September.
Pledge to make your space available for events during the month of September 2018. Work with people and groups who have great ideas, but no place to hold their events. Your organization will meet potential new members and people who will build a community around your space.
When you pledge to make your space available you pledge to do the following:
- Take calls and answer emails from members of the tech community about the use of your space.
- Work with and accommodate women, people of color, minorities, people with disabilities, persons of lower economic status, and other marginalized groups who are often treated unequally in the tech industry.
Thanks in advance for contributing to this great cause!
Here are some highlights from last September:
- Fourteen venues donated their spaces to help with our awareness month
- Our campaign had over half a million impressions on our twitter outreach alone
- Eight media outlets participated in our robust ad and awareness campaign
- Our calendar featured and promoted over 100 tech events in the Chicagoland area
