When was the last time you took part in a big event either as a sponsor or as an event partner? How did it feel? Were you able to maximize your investments and did you get the much-needed leads and conversions from that event?
Imagine if it is not just any ordinary event. Imagine if you are right there at the spectacular convergence of tech, chill & growing your business. And since the venue is by the beach, then the people will remember that experience, that event will be the talk of the town, and in return it will be recognized that your brand helped make that experience possible.
WHY ARE WE DOING GEEKS ON A BEACH FOR THE 4th YEAR IN A ROW?
Because we want to be the event that is a perfect fit for the startup community, something that would convey the attitude of startups: vibrant, dynamic and with endless possibilities.
We think startups don’t necessarily talk to the government, and the government does not necessarily talk to startups but having you our corporate sponsors in the middle of this “getting-to-know each other” stage of the relationship adds sincerity to our agenda in building the startup ecosystem.
GOAB has designed programs that have directly benefited startups like zipmatch.com in terms of funding. We have funders and mentors having a drink with startups, and we have pitching competitions highlighting the glorious innovations that our startups have done. Business matching is one of our key propositions and that is one of our direct contributions to growing startups and increasing tech talent in the region.
ENTER, CORPORATE STARTUP ENGAGEMENT
“The importance of innovation is not lost on most corporates. Much has been written about the drastically shortening lifespan of big companies – the average tenure of a firm in the S&P 500 shrank from 61 years in 1958 to 18 years. But the most forward-thinking corporates know that the best ideas don’t always come from within their own business. Instead, they are setting powerful examples of how working with and investing in startups can help defend and grow market position.”
- Brent Hobberman, Founder, LastMinute.com, made.com.
We cannot underestimate the value of startups. And through the “Corporate Startup Engagement” track, we provide a platform for corporates to expand their horizon regarding bringing in the best talents in tech, design or business; and businesses discovering innovative technology solutions that can increase competency in their core business or enhance their revenue-generating abilities.
In the same manner, we aim to help startups pinpoint corporates who are serious about using digital innovation to enhance, improve or disrupt their existing business models, and who are willing to negotiate fairly and close deals quickly.
IMAGINE HAVING ACCESS TO ALL THESE!
We are in this together, this not just our event, this an event that brings together not only the best of both worlds but the best of all worlds. In our 4th year, we are brave to say “best of all worlds” because we believe it all starts with oneself.
Bring the best of yourselves and we will bring you the best opportunities to connect, collaborate and close deals.
If the beautiful sunset on a beach is not too appealing to you, then watch what happens between sundown and sunrise. Geeks On a Beach is our heartfelt contribution to the startup community, and we would love to invite you to partner with us through sponsorship - in other words, we dare you to be right at the heart of the startup agenda in Bohol and just be surprised at how far your sponsorship can go.
Get in touch with us and we will be more than glad to work with you in leveraging the GOAB platform to grow your business.
