Tech and the City

Community Partners

Bring more people to your event through Community Partners
Community Parnterships engage organically and without cost people from the local Community.
  • Student Teams (campus-based mostly)
  • Innovation Organizations (incubators, accelerators, University Research centers)

How to sell it: Tech and the City is an opportunity for Student Teams' members. Because our programs are free but have limited availability, each team should want to publish our announcements as a new opportunity for its network.

Promotion of Tech and the City by a Student Team

  • "Call for volunteers" share in social channels (Facebook post, Instagram Story)
    Posting of a video teaser on Social Media, a short explanation of the event with the call-to-action to apply as Organizing Team, and publishing of the Press Release Announcement on teams' Blog/ Site
  • ✅ Tickets Announcement post share in social channels
    Tech and the City: Posting of Tickets Call
  •  Team-Participation in the Live Panel - if applicable
    Posting of screenshot of the Live Panel, tagging Tech and the City

What Students Teams get back

  • ✅ Community Partner Badge & Logo featuring in Tech and the City Site
  • ✅ Exclusive all-access Tickets
  • Presidents of Student Teams in a Live Panel about Students Startups - not promoting their team but answering on how can a student Startup (limited - the top 5 teams should be selected to participate)
