Corporate Sponsorship Opportunities
If you represent a business that is looking for some exposure to small business owners and entrepreneurs in the Sioux Falls community, we have two sponsorship options that are now available through our Patreon account.
First, we have a corporate sponsorship tier that costs $150.00 per month. For this price, your company’s logo will be placed on the Startup Sioux Falls homepage, in each weeks’ email newsletter (which is read by more than 1,500 Sioux Falls business professionals) and on the pinned announcement post of the Startup Sioux Falls Facebook group. Your company will also receive a shout out at in-person Startup Sioux Falls events and a personalized shout out on Facebook when your company first becomes a patron.
We also have a premier sponsorship level for companies and individuals that want maximum exposure to the Startup Sioux Falls audience. In addition to the benefits of being a corporate sponsor, you will also receive 10 free Startup Sioux Falls t-shirts, have your company’s logo featured on the Startup Sioux Falls Facebook banner, be interviewed for an article on the Startup Sioux Falls website, and be listed as the sponsor of an episode of the Sioux Falls Startup Stories podcast each season.
