Our rapid growth and expanding programs are primarily made possible by the generous support of our corporate and academic sponsors. We view sponsorship as more than a commitment of financial support. Our sponsors are our partners in the community, helping us demonstrate the dynamism of Upstate NY’s technology business community.
You’re In Great Company with DR
As an Event Sponsor, you’re reaching nearly 5,000 technology entrepreneurs, executives and professionals. Our sponsors are a unique mix of Fortune 500 companies, regional and growing businesses, academic and research facilities and other organizations dedicated to technology economic development.
Your company logo will be on our website with a link to your company’s website. You will also have several options to present your company’s services or products at our events.
The following are a sample of some of our events:
First Tuesdays with Digital Rochester
Our signature monthly Networking parties are what got us started. Generally held on the first Tuesday of the month (barring conflicts with holidays), these events have continually drawn hundreds of business professionals to a freewheeling mix of conversation, information exchange and fun. Held at hot spots all around Rochester, these events offer sponsors the opportunity to greatly enhance brand and business presence awareness while meeting and greeting 125-150 potential clients, partners and employees. Many of our sponsors have chosen to set up interactive demonstrations, hand out info and otherwise join in the fun.
Knowledge Upgrade Series
DR’s Knowledge Upgrade Series offers Event Sponsors the opportunity to support high level tech educational events in a presentation/panel discussion format. These events require pre-registration and a continental breakfast is served during the networking time prior to the event. The audiences for these events are experienced tech professionals seeking to upgrade their knowledge of breakthrough technologies and current business issues. Your presence as a Sponsor positions your company as a valued resource to the technology community. Topics and industries vary, making this a perfect event for topic related sponsorship. Knowledge Upgrade sponsors receive display space at the events, acknowledgment with web site links on DR’s event web site and in all event-related communications.
Digital Rochester hosts quarterly invitation-only events for CEOs of local technology-based companies. We’ve enjoyed great local restaurants, site visits, inspiring speakers, Buffalo Bills camp and a sunset sail on the Wild Hearts catamaran! If you want to meet the decision makers one-on-one, you want to sponsor this event! Sponsors have an opportunity to market themselves at this event in a variety of ways.
Digital Rochester partners with E. Phillip Saunders College at RIT to bring a unique educational experience to those with leadership responsibility in growing companies. Professors and professionals are teaming up to design the content and to deliver modules that are a brain dump of powerful, practical information. Sponsors have the opportunity to market to this highly focused group of business leaders. In addition to visibility at this event, the sponsor will receive acknowledgment with web site links on DR’s event web site and in all event-related communications.
These are only the beginning. We’re planning projects involving entrepreneurship, venture capital, economic development and more. Joining DR as an Event Sponsor is a synergistic choice: Your participation rewards your bottom line, contributes to the community and helps position your company or organization as supporters of the Knowledge Economy in Rochester.
