THIS ONE IS FOR THE KIDS! SPONSORING THIS EVENT:
It’s our 17th year of the What’s Your Big Idea Entrepreneurship Contest, and we would love your support to make this the best one yet. For two years, the hundreds of finalists we’ve had for this event have had to celebrate virtually, and we are thrilled to bring the event back to UTA’s College Park Center. On Saturday, April 22, we are recognizing 750+ AISD students for their big, entrepreneurial ideas, and we anticipate 3,500+ attendees joining us for the event.
We have created some new sponsorship opportunities this year that allow your logo and company name to be visible more than ever! We’ve outlined below just some of the opportunities. We want to work with you and your business to create a sponsorship that’s the perfect fit. If you’re interested but need help finding the right level or want to create something new, please let us know.
