* The Sponsy token sale will only be considered to be successful if the soft cap of $2M (USD) (in crypto equivalent) is collected from selling tokens. If the token sale does not reach the soft cap, all pre-sale and public sale purchase amounts shall be returned to the token sale participants within thirty business days, minus of any blockchain transaction fees and any funds that may have already been allocated by the Sponsy as per the use of proceeds.

** Any unsold tokens after each stage shall roll over to the next stage. Any excess tokens will be burned after the token sale.

*** Total number of SPONS tokens in circulation will be twice as many as total number of SPONS sold during pre-sale and public sale. Since we might end up not selling all of the initially planned 237.000.000 SPONS, the total number of SPONS tokens in circulation may be substantially less than specified.

Market Overview

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.

High demand

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.

What’s wrong with sponsorships?

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.

  • Imagine...

    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.

  • Terrible bureocracy

    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.

We want to make sponsorship available to everyone

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.

Decentralizing decision-making

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.

Sponsy technology

  • 01
    Internet 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.
  • 02
    Blockchain
    Work with experts
    Safe transactions and disputes resolution
    Thanks 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.

  • 03
    Artificial Intelligence
    We are developing several AI technologies, which make sponsorships collaboration even more automated.
    IntelliNews©
    Allows for the automatic collection of all the data in the Internet that concerns a certain brand or company. This is especially useful when looking for a new partnership. IntelliNews relies broadly on Google News and Google Alert.
    SponsyMatch©
    A technology that allows us to find companies that are extremely likely to be successful in cooperation.

Introducing: The SPONS token

SPONS is an ERC20 compatible token. SPONS token is implemented as a combination of a token-as-currency, a token-as-discount, and a token-as-membership. SPONS token is utility token and is not a security.

Serving as an inner currency

In order to stimulate the usage of SPONS tokens, all platform’s members are incentivised to use SPONS tokens for mutual financial settlements. Lawyers, designers, and other experts, and people involved in an independent evaluation of the benefits of potential deals, will be paid in SPONS tokens.

Carrying a voting right

Possession of SPONS tokens will allow voting about potential future sponsorship deals. Larger amount of tokens entails greater voting power. The owners of our tokens will be motivated to exercise their voting capability, as the votes that convert into real signed sponsorship deals may bring the voters some reward, coming as a fee charged from a sponsorship sum.

Acting as discount

Relying on SPONS tokens to pay for the services rendered by experts within our network is the basis for obtaining a discount of 9-25% of the amounts charged by the expert.
