Why sponsor the Tech Trailblazers Awards 10th Edition Celebration?

On 8th December 2021, the Tech Trailblazers will be holding its first awards ceremony to celebrate a monumental 10 trailblazing editions. Attendees from around the globe will join a festive virtual celebration revealing 2021’s winners and runners-up – from the comfort of their home or office. 

Hosted by Chief Trailblazer, Rose Ross, the event will feature familiar faces including our esteemed judges.

We welcome any organization within the enterprise technology and/or tech startup ecosystem to sponsor this inaugural event. Our range of packages promote sponsors through a range of channels before, during and after the event. 

Here’s what you could gain from becoming a sponsor: 

1. Direct access to an extensive and diverse global network of enterprise tech enthusiasts 

Over the last 10 editions, we’ve built a strong and diverse community of startup founders, C-suite executives, senior technologists, tech enthusiasts and others from the enterprise tech startup ecosystem. Sponsoring the event is a key opportunity to become part of this network and the conversations within it. 

2. Increased market visibility – exposure to key decision makers 

Sponsoring the event gives you the chance to communicate your value proposition to the right kind of targets. You’ll gain exposure to key decision makers within the Tech Trailblazers network – from startup founders and CEOs, to senior technologists and CTOs for major multinationals (plus technology and startup media). 

3. Exposure to international markets for your company

Looking to break into new international markets? Our network of professionals spans The Americas, EMEA (Europe, Middle East & Africa) and APAC (Asia Pacific). Exposure to potential customers in target markets could help you gain a footprint in your target geographies.

Just look at the geographic spread of Tech Trailblazers entrants from over the years – representing just one segment of our community…

4. Be part of a progressive global tech network championing diversity, equality and inclusion 

The Tech Trailblazers Awards is constantly evolving to reflect what’s important and changing within enterprise technology and the startup landscape. For instance, we introduced the Firestarter Trailblazers award and bursary in 2015 to ensure early-stage startups faced no barriers to entering. 

This year, our new Diversity Trailblazers award was created to highlight organizations championing the full spectrum of diversity, equality and inclusion initiatives. This includes (but is not limited to) age, disability, ethnicity, gender, neurodiversity, race, sexuality, and socioeconomic background. 

Sponsoring the 2021 event aligns you with an organization actively prioritizing diversity, equality and inclusion within the global enterprise tech and startup community.

5. A more diverse entrant pool than ever

We’ve changed the game for 2021. Our two new categories – the Diversity Trailblazers and Investment Trailblazers awards – are open to the wider enterprise tech startup ecosystem. 

This year, accelerators, incubators, banks, government bodies, channel players, legal firms, VCs, accountancy firms and seed funds were invited to enter these categories and be recognized for their contributions within the startup community. The 2021 awards provides sponsors access to the largest, most diverse pool of entrants yet.

6. Promotion goes beyond our event 

As a sponsor, it goes without saying that you’ll be prominent across the awards night. But our packages are designed to feature you in the lead up and cool down of the event too.  All packages include promotion of your company and logo via a video, featured #TechOnFire podcast with us, a company by-lined article on the Tech Trailblazers blog, as well as a shout out to our followers on our social channels.
