Hello and welcome to the brand new blog of Sponsia.com – the online marketplace linking sponsors to organizers of local events, causes and activities!
Who are we?
Sponsia was founded by Milen Ivanov and Teodosy Teodosiev on the 20th of November 2012 with the vision to create a whole new channel for advertisers via a global online platform that will help people to sell branding opportunities from the events of their lives to interested brands and businesses. The project is backed up by Eleven – a EUR 12 million venture fund that provides financing to early-stage startups, powered by Springboard, the leading European startup accelerator.
Right now we are a team of 9 that includes Milen (CMO and Co-founder), Teo (CTO and Co-founder), Silvena Dragostinova (Developer), Jivko Todorov (Graphic Designer), Niki Markov (City Sales Manager), Rumen Russev (City Sales Manager), Vladimir Ivanov (Online Marketing Specialist), Lora Yacheva (Marketing Intern) and Hristina Todorova (Marketing Intern).
What do we do?
Sponsia gives professional and non-professional event organizers the opportunity to raise funds and create better events and also helps them find sponsors interested in their events. Sponsors, on the other hand, benefit from a wide choice of activities that could position their brands and businesses at the right events in front of the right target consumers, thus influencing the awareness, image and sales.
Sponsia brings sponsorship to a new level by giving new opportunities, providing flexibility and suggesting new budget-friendly formats of sponsoring – beneficial for both sides.
