So, we’re looking for sponsors for various activities aimed at the tech startup community. If any of these take your interest, feel free to email mike AT mbites.com to discuss.
The Europas, the European Startup Awards, were last held in London in December 2010, the second awards ever. It was the culmination of a month of online voting by the European tech startup industry for the finalists, where some 33,126 votes were cast across 23 categories, eight judges deliberated over the results and over 350 people joined the cream of Europe’s startups, VCs and entrepreneurs on the 31st story of stunning venue with amazing views over central London. We plan to hold this again in November this year and we’re looking for sponsors. Last year’s sponsors included Microsoft, Fidelity Growth Partners Europe, Latitude, Bootlaw and TechHub.
GeeknRolla is an annual conference to bring together Europe’s technology startups to network with investors and talk about how they create and build themselves, and to act as a platform to launch brand new startups. Around 400 people attend. We plan to hold it in Spring next year and make the fourth edition of the event the biggest ever.
TechBites is an antidote to networking events over bad wine. It’s a dinner for about 12 people, hand-picked entrepreneurs, investors and other notables from the tech and business world. Great food, great wine, great conversation. We cover various topics including, but not limited to: business, technology, culture, media and the future. Guests vary. Events are invitation only. The discussion is held under the Chatham House Rule. One sponsor per event.
SIlicon Roundabout film / The London Startup Story
We are planning to make a film about the birth of London’s tech cluster. Email over your stories about “SIlicon Roundabout” and we’ll look at incorporating you. We’re looking for a sponsor(s) which want to be associated with this film, which will be widely circulated online and on TechCrunch.
We are planning to record a song about London startups. This is also ‘sponsorable’.
We have other event ideas and are looking to tailor these depending on what sponsors want to achieve. Get in touch to discuss.
