The Future of Sponsoring - Now
Get a third of your project sponsored - and a marketing campaign at the same time? Sounds great.
I think it is.
With the crowdfunding-platform wemakeit
that I am representing in
Austria, we have a cooperation going that does just that.
The Bank Austria Kunstpreis
a third of the target sum of selected campaigns on
wemakeit this year. Eligible are all sorts of
cultural projects based in or linked to Austria
- whether you would like to record a certain piece,
whether you need infrastructure for your studio,
production costs for an event, whether you would
like to host a conference or print a publication.
Get a third of your projects budget.
The Bank Austria Kunstpreis has got 110’000.- EUR to
spend supporting these projects. If your
part of this,
you will have their support as soon
as you have reached 33% of your target sum together with
your crowd, which has to be at least 20 people strong.
If you got that, the Bank Austria Kunstpreis
will take over the next 33% percent -
and you are are two thirds of the way to getting your project
financed. The last 33% are again up to you and your crowd -
but with a boost like that, your
chances are high of nailing this last bit as well.
Combining this sponsorship with crowdfunding is
a perfect match: with a crowdfunding campaign,
you don’t „only“ (don’t want to play that down)
raise money, you also communicate your project as
best you can in order to active your crowd and through that
you let people engage and participate -
you strengthen your network and your fanbase.
The sponsor gives you a massive boost on the
way and helps build trust for future supporters. I like.
Interested? Submit your project till 31st of July!
