The average fee
The average fee charged by a sponsorship agency nowadays can reach an astonishing 35% of the funding amount.
Market size is growing
Sponsorship is the fastest growing marketing segment in terms of annual investment, with a market size of more than $60Bn as of today. It’s expected to exceed $90Bn by year 2019. Sponsorship is a great way for companies to generate revenue and acquire new customers. Instead of traditional marketing channels, which bombard people with multiple intrusive marketing messages on a daily basis, sponsorship creates a quality dialogue between a brand and its potential customers.
The sponsorships industry is one of the most ancient ways of marketing. However, this fact does not prevent it from enjoying huge popularity today and attracting billions of sponsors’ dollars.
Sponsorships take various shapes
Sponsorships are not only limited to sports. Sponsorships include musical festivals, fairs, non-for-profit events, presentations, exhibitions, tradeshows and many more exciting things.
Despite the fact that sponsorship is the most widely recognized way of marketing, today’s market is heavily biased towards AAA-sized companies and events, such as McDonalds, FIFA and NASCAR. The industry is dealing with enormous bureaucracy, insane fees, slow decision making, and non-transparent contracts.
More importantly, small and medium-sized businesses, willing to enter into a sponsorship deal, are deprived of modern tools and techniques. They are forced to make their own way through endless hurdles and eventually agree on disadvantageous terms.
Highly centralized industry
The sphere of sponsorships today is a highly centralized industry. The market is monopolized and hopelessly concentrated in the hands of several widely known top-end brokers, such as CAA (Creative Artists Agency), Boras Corporation, Relativity Sports and Wasserman Media Group. This poses a threat to the integrity of the market and leads to a number of problems, among which are difficulties for small companies that are wishing to enter into sponsorship deals to collaborate with agencies, because of their inability to provide sufficient financial return. Moreover, crazy fees charged by brokers makes it difficult for sponsors with small budgets to carry out a sponsorship deal.
that you are a musical fair organizer. You need money to finance a whole variety of things, such as catering, equipment rental, employees' salary, etc. These are the problems you are going to face as soon as you start.
Even today, in the 21st century, unless you are a Formula-1 sized event, the only way to find a sponsor is a manual search for the right people. You will have to contact an awful lot of companies, trying to find managers who make financial decisions and convince them to sponsor you.
They will most likely refuse to cooperate.
Sponsorship agencies wouldn’t like to work with you
Big agencies prefer to work with large and well-known companies. They do not consider smaller venues like yours. You will have to work alone, which is certainly not as productive as working with professionals.
Choosing a sponsor that would be a match for you
With so many different brands around us today, it's easy to make a mistake when choosing the right partner. The purpose of sponsorship is to achieve greater recognition of the sponsor's brand. If your audience is not interested in the brand being advertised, the sponsor will not get the expected return on investment, and you will be asked to give the money back.
Sponsors also face big problems
The conclusion of deals only appears to be easy. There is a huge amount of pitfalls one must be aware of before getting into the sponsorships market. Your partner will definitely take advantage of your ignorance to subject you to unfavorable terms. Even such large companies as MasterCard, FIFA, Nestle and Olympus, which manage entire departments of lawyers, had to deal with multimillion-dollar litigations.
Now it does not matter if you have a huge budget. We don’t care about your turnover. You can be a well-advertised company or a small family-held business. We provide our users with a solution that they can rely on to negotiate deals and discover new sponsorship opportunities. Simply join our network and start looking for partners. Thanks to the maximum automation of sponsorship-related processes, we charge much smaller fees, compared to the market average, while giving customers what they have been demanding for so long - better quality.
Convenient online interface where the work happens
Tedious manual searches for investments are gone. All sponsorship related tasks could be solved on our platform. We provide our clients with all the necessary functions to get things done quickly and efficiently, such as tools required for communication, ability to track the work progress, and instantly see the results of ongoing sponsorship campaigns.
We are going to transfer decision-making on future sponsorships to those people who will ultimately witness the results of sponsorship campaigns – the end consumers. This, as we believe, is our biggest advantage, as a decentralized agency, over a typically centralized one. Involving people, not connected with the sponsorship industry to vote on the appropriateness of a potential transaction, allows departure from traditional decision-making and factors used by boring marketers, and starts generating really exciting ideas.
01Internet Of Things (IoT)We actively employ the Internet of Things by providing a multifunctional API for developers to connect from any smart device. Data from connected devices, such as video surveillance cameras, microphones, automatic visitor counters, flocks to the control panel and will be available for examination by sponsors after making a couple of clicks. This is especially useful when sponsors want to track performance of a sponsored event.
02BlockchainWork with expertsSafe transactions and disputes resolutionThanks to storing all the interactions of Sponsy members in the immutable ledger, it becomes very easy to track the sequence of actions and find the guilty party.Conclusion of legal contractsDecision-making on future sponsorship dealsOur tokenholders vote on whether to bring another sponsorship deal to life.Storage of reviews

Provide required information
Unlike centralized sponsorship agencies, we do not discriminate companies willing to participate in sponsorship activities. However, there is a mechanism called proof-of-client-eligibility, which is used to examine each company willing to join our network on financial, public and other kind of issues.
Collected information must be analyzed for the presence of questionable details and misleading information.
Facts and figures instantly shed light on the real state of the business.
Particular attention is paid to the intensity of brand’s or event’s coverage in press.
It helps to prevent conflicts of interest and, as a consequence, litigations.
Matching brands with events
Extensive research must be carried out to conclude a sponsorship deal that would be equally beneficial for both sponsoring and sponsored party. We rely on several techniques to achieve great affinity between brands and events, including automatic filtering of inappropriate candidates, manual analysis done by our experts, and voting exercised by our token holders.
Distributed network of experts start working
Once the decision is made, it’s time for our decentralized network of experts to start their sponsorship-related work. Highly skilled professionals can be discovered and hired right within Sponsy network.
