Sponsorships

Want to sponsor Ignite Portland?

We’re looking for some great partners to help us make Ignite Portland possible. Ignite Portland is run by unpaid volunteers. To bring Portland’s passions to the stage, we need funds for venue rental, insurance, promotion, and other costs associated with putting on the event.

Why you should sponsor

This is the 12th Ignite Portland! Ignite attracts hundreds of people every year to hear talks about a wide range of (often geeky) topics, which this year include bike commuting, migrating to Portland, and absolutely terrible examples of web designs. Speakers are funny, clever, super smart, and all local.
We like to support our own and could use local businesses and companies to support us, too.

Sponsorship Packages

We have two sponsorship levels available:

Spark: $250

To thank you for your support, we’ll add your company logo to our website, show it on slides during the event, and announce your sponsorship in a short presentation following intermission. We’ll also save you two seats near the stage.

Flame: $1000

In addition to the benefits listed above, you’ll get top billing on our website and can submit a 140 character message (subject to approval) to be displayed alongside your logo in our pre-show slides. We’ll also save you an additional two seats, for a total of four.

What organization do my funds support?

Ignite Portland is a production of Stumptown Syndicate, a nonprofit organization dedicated to creating resilient, radically inclusive tech and maker communities that empower positive change.
