We are open to handcrafting a partnership experience at a number of levels, targeted at your outreach needs. Whether you’re pre-launch or a household name, we want to work with a select few companies to make YxYY an extraordinary co-created experience.
WHY PARTNERSHIP MATTERS
Our partners are integral to making YxYY an awesome, one-of-a-kind experience. Your partner dollars at work:
- Help keep participation costs down, to bring a greater variety of east coast & international attendees, and to invite innovators from non-profit and government worlds to share ideas.
- Ensure that structured activities are high-quality and memorable
- Bring unique, additive experiences to the event
- Most importantly, YxYY is a labor of love for its organizers– without the support of our amazing sponsors, YxYY simply couldn’t happen!
HOW TO GET THE MOST VALUE (AND GIVE IT):
Authenticity is of the utmost importance when it comes to participating as a sponsor, so we ask that interested participants think outside the realm of traditional event marketing. Consider organic ways to add to or participate in the weekend, as opposed to ways that force attendees to participate in the brand. This will make a much more positive lasting impact on the community than a giant banner or downloading your app.
For inspiration, think spontaneity! Co-creation! Making stuff! Interacting with PEOPLE! IN REAL LIFE!
