Sponsorships

We’re looking for some great partners to help us make Ignite Miami possible. Ignite Miami is run by unpaid volunteers. We invest our time to create events designed to educate and entertain the business, technical, and creative communities of the South Florida metropolitan area. To bring Miami’s passions to the stage, we need funds for venue rental, insurance, promotion, and other costs associated with putting on the event.

Can You Help Us?

We are looking for companies to sponsor Ignite Miami’s upcoming events.

Our team of volunteers contributes many hours each week to plan and implement Ignite Miami. However, it takes more than our labor to produce each event. We have a wide range of costs including the venue, advertising, and other materials and activities that support the events.

Simply put, we can’t produce an Ignite Miami event without our sponsors.

Sponsorship FAQ

Q: I know Ignite Miami typically fills the venue. Can I get reserved seats for my company?

A: No. However, sponsors are allowed into the theater 10 minutes prior to the general public to choose their seats.

Q: Can I do an in-kind sponsorship?

A: Talk to us. If we have a need and you can provide it, we are happy to discuss the possibilities with you.

Q: What type of payment do you prefer?

A: Please provide payment through the Eventbrite registration form for the Ignite Miami event you would like to sponsor.

Q: What are the requirements for a sponsor video?

A: We accept video in a standard video format. We must have your video two weeks before the event to include it in our presentation materials.

Q: How do we submit our logo?

A: Email a high-resolution logo image file that we can use on our website and to promote you at the event to contact [at] ignitemiami [dot] com. If possible, it is best if the logo is in a square format.

Q: Can I give away promotional items, product samples, or raffle items during an Ignite Miami event?

A: We make an effort to keep Ignite Miami about ideas and not about businesses. In the past, our sponsors have been happy with the ways we promote them without including branded items. That being said, if you have a creative idea involving products or give-aways, please contact Alex de Carvalho at alex [at] ignitemiami [dot] com or 305-403-9747, to discuss your idea.
