Sponsy Introduction Story

Watch this brief story to understand ins and outs of the sponsorship business and see how Sponsy tackles the issues faced by sponsors and sponsees all over the world.

Market Overview

The fastest growing marketing medium

Decreasing efficiency of measured media, shifting personal values and high consumer acceptance lead to sponsorship growth outpacing the growth of traditional marketing segments, including advertising.

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. 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.

SME want in

Small and mid-sized businesses are deprived of sponsorship opportunities.

Sponsorships take various shapes

Sponsorships are not only limited to sports and may be required for musical festivals, fairs, non-for-profit events, presentations, exhibitions and trade-shows, amongst others.

Highly centralized industry

The sponsorship market is highly centralized as it operates through a few top-end brokers, such as CAA (Creative Artists Agency), Boras Corporation, Relativity Sports and Wasserman Media Group. Large brokers and agencies are often unwilling to work with small and medium-sized companies and prefer to cooperate with large and well-known brands and events.

  • Inflated fees

    The average fee charged by a sponsorship agency can reach as high as 35% of the funding amount. Such high fees are unaffordable for small and medium sized companies.

  • Slow processing of deals

    The sponsorship industry is dealing with bureaucracy, slow decision-making processes, and non-transparent contracts. It can take as long as 12 months for a sponsorship deal to conclude.

  • Significant barriers to entry

    Despite being the most widely recognized way of marketing, sponsorships tend to be available only to the AAA-sized companies and events, such as McDonalds, FIFA and NASCAR, rather than small and medium sized companies.

  • Lack of information

    Sponsorship is a large industry, which despite of its wide popularity, has failed to undergo a digital transformation. Information regarding market prices and trends for sponsorship deals are not readily available - meaning that sponsors and sponsees often make deals based on incomplete information.

  • Market inefficiencies

    In the absence of a central source of information, sponsees often have to carry out a manual search for sponsorship deals, which is not cost-effective and is often time-consuming. Sponsors also have a limited choice when it comes to purchasing structured sponsorship opportunities, as the only deals they are exposed to are the ones introduced to them by their agents.

Solution

We enable sponsees to tokenize their sponsorship assets and sell them to sponsors by issuing custom SPONS-backed tokens. This presents sponsees with an ability to sell parts of their sponsorship assets to various sponsors, a capacity to raise sponsorship funding from their own customers, as well as secondary market opportunities.

Why Sponsy?
First Mover Advantage
We are the first to combine innovative technologies of assets tokenization and artificial intelligence to redefine the sponsorship industry.
Solving a Real Problem
Tedious manual searches for sponsorships are gone. The Sponsy platform offers a convenient online interface for doing all the sponsorship-related work.
Working MVP
Sponsy goes beyond a vision and a roadmap. We have already developed our MVP and have a passionate team of developers continuously working to improve it.
Decentralizing decision-making
By acting as a decentralised agency, Sponsy allows sponsors and sponsees to judge the appropriateness of a potential sponsorship transaction, thereby transferring the decision-making powers to the end consumers.
Existing Partnerships
Sponsy has already secured MOUs with large brands such as Adidas, Bosch and 42Workspace. We are sseking to grow our network of sponsors and sponsees.
Growing market
Sponsorship is the fastest growing marketing segment in terms of annual investment, with a market size of more than $60 Billion USD. It is expected to exceed $90 Billion USD by 2019.
Transparency and reliability
All information regarding the sponsorship assets is stored on the blockchain. Any potential sponsor is free to examine each asset’s history, learn the price that was paid for it before, and make an independent decision based on real facts.
Lower Fees
By eliminating the middlemen, we can charge fees that are 6 times lower than those charged by traditional sponsorship agencies and brokers.
Global Reach
The Sponsy platform will support 99% of the countries worldwide, giving our sponsees and sponsors more options to choose from when it comes to securing a sponsorship deal.
Sponsy features
Sponsorship Tokenization
We introduce a new robust approach to doing sponsorships - sponsorship assets. Sponsorship assets can be either virtual or physical objects, such as banners, exhibitions, introductions, branded gifts. They can be tokenized by sponsees and sold to sponsors.
Sponsorship Ecosystem
Sponsy’s ecosystem connects sponsors, sponsees and experts. Experts are skilled geographically distributed professionals who take part in every sponsorship transaction. Proof-of-work-done mechanism ensures the quality of work performed by the experts.
Signature Tokens
Sponsy allows businesses to issue their own Signature Tokens and sell them to sponsors, partners and their customers. Signature Tokens creation also facilitates the development of secondary market for sponsorship assets.
Blockchain to the rescue
We utilize Ethereum blockchain to store all information about the sponsorship deals, signature tokens and the sponsorship assets, thus enabling potential sponsors to track the history of each sponsorship asset including its previous owners, reviews, and its past performance.

Sponsy technology

We have already built the core product. Our team consists of talented developers who are constantly working to develop the Sponsy App and the Sponsy Platform.
  • 01
    Internet Of Things (IoT)
    By incorporating IoT technology, Sponsy provides a multifunctional API to developers which they can use to connect smart devices. Data from these smart devices relating to each sponsorship asset, such as video surveillance, audio recordings, visitor counters, automatically flows to the Sponsy online interface and is made available for sponsors and other concerned parties to analyse. Having access to real-time data from sponsored properties will prove useful to sponsors when analyzing the performance of their investments.
  • 02
    Artificial Intelligence
    By using AI technology we are better able to automate the collaboration process crucial to completing a sponsorship deal.
    IntelliNews©
    IntelliNews© allows for automatic collection of all data available on the Internet about any brand or company. This is useful when searching for a new partnership.
    SponsyMatch©
    Our artificial intelligence system allows us to instantly and effectively match sponsors with sponsees and also brands with events.
  • 03
    Blockchain technology
    Storage of relevant sponsorship information on the blockchain increases transparency and makes the process time-efficient and cost effective, thereby eliminating market inefficiency.
    Implementing blockchain ensures:
    • Tokenization opportunities
    • Safe transactions and disputes resolution
    • Conclusion of legal contracts
    • Storage of community reviews
Sponsorship on-the-go

As a part of our decentralized sponsorship solution, Sponsy has released a mobile app, which enables every user to access the Sponsy blockchain and carry out sponsorship-related tasks through an intuitive interface.

How Sponsy works
  • Apply to Sponsy

    Any business can apply to join Sponsy. We use an unbiased proof-of-client-eligibility mechanism (which includes reviewing financials, public image and previous deals) to determine whether an applicant meets our entry criteria.

  • Sponsees issue custom tokens

    Businesses interested in receiving sponsorship funding will use Sponsy to issue their own custom Signature Tokens. Signature Tokens will back their sponsorship assets. Sponsees are free to mint as many tokens as they see fit to sell to sponsors.

  • Sponsees list their Sponsorship Assets

    Sponsees will list their Sponsorship Assets and assign a finite price denominated in Signature Tokens to each of them. Each Sponsorship Asset will have a detailed description, location, attention score and other properties associated with it.

    Sponsors discover suitable assets

    Sponsors are able to search for sponsorship assets, focusing on their own requirements (geographic limitations and audience size).

Matching brands with events

We use numerous methods to ensure a greater affinity between brands and events, including automatic filtering of inappropriate candidates, manual analysis done by our experts, as well as community voting.

SponsyMatch©
The SponsyMatch artificial intelligence system allows us to instantly drop up to 85% of brands and events that are very likely not to be able to collaborate productively if a sponsorship deal was to be negotiated.
Sponsorship experts make their educated decision
Independent experts will carefully examine potential contracts and express their educated opinion.
Token holders vote on appropriateness of a deal
Thousands of independent consumers - our token holders - will have the opportunity to give their view on any potential sponsorship deal. These consumers represent the target audience, whose positive impression is necessary for making a sponsorship deal successful.

Sponsors buy SPONS tokens from the market

Sponsors will need to buy SPONS tokens, and convert them into sponsees’ Signature Tokens in order to be able to purcahse any Sponsorship Asset.

Sponsors purchase sponsorship assets

Sponsors put their SPONS tokens into escrow. They will be released based on the progress of the sponsorship deal and requirements of sponsees.

Distributed network of experts starts working to finalize the deal

Skilled professionals can be discovered and hired right within Sponsy network. Moreover, our users will benefit from receiving experts’ services at a price up to 25% lower than the market average.

Why do we need a token?

Sponsy platform would not be complete without tokenization features. SPONS tokens are the backbone of each sponsorship asset and each Signature Token issued by sponsees.

Simplification of sponsorship procedures

By listing tokenized sponsorship assets on the Sponsy platform, sponsees can automatically offer them to thousands of potential sponsors. Moreover, there is no need to keep track of which sponsorship assets have already been booked by sponsors, and which have not.

Sourcing sponsorship capital from own customers

Sponsees are free to source sponsorship financing from their own clients, while offering certain rights, discounts and benefits in return. For example, a sponsee can sell its Signature Tokens to customers, granting them a 1-year free of charge access to a property or event.

Secondary market of sponsorship assets

Tokenising sponsorship assets will give rise to various sponsorship derivatives and secondary sponsorship products. Assets can be placed in tranches structured by a wide range of factors such as physical or virtual sponsorship assets, geographical location, sponsees genres and business type and sponsees’ audience size.

A chance to work with hundreds of sponsors simultaneously

Tokenizing sponsorship assets allows sponsees to sell their sponsorship assets to a number of sponsors at the same time. Any sponsor not interested in covering the whole funding need of a sponsee can consider buying a few sponsorship assets that best suit their target audience’s requirements.
