What if sponsorship could fund your projects?

Imagine how much more freedom you would have with your airfare comp’d, your rental car at no cost, your hotel paid for, your meals on the house, and your presentations, project, and book launch all sponsored and paid for before you began…

All of these benefits are completely possible and this kind of support is achieved every day by people who understand the value of sponsorship to companies who want to bask in the shine of the goodwill you and your project can create for them.​

Is sponsorship worth it?

There are BILLIONS of dollars in funding that are earmarked to go to projects just like yours every year; the trick is knowing who has the grants, donations, and sponsorship funds, how to engage them, and of course, what you need to do to stand out from the crowd.

When you take this course, be prepared to hear some shocking information about how much pressure is put on sponsorship professionals to find opportunities to allocate five, six, and even seven figures of funding.  There are thousands of people all over the country under huge pressure to make sure that this money is funding projects that make a difference. The next project could be yours.
