Sponsorship Opportunities Available!
Computer Mentors has two awesome events coming that we are seeking sponsorship’s for. Both will occur in early 2017. Please see descriptions below, and consider becoming a combo sponsor, sponsoring both events, and receiving a discount for doing so. The events are certainly meant to be fundraisers, but our goal is to also make them FUN-raisers for you and your staff to participate.
Event 1 – 4th Annual Teen Business Challenge
The 4th Annual Teen Business Challenge is scheduled to occur on the week-end of February 18th and 19th 2017. This is an opportunity that challenges teens to uplift themselves and engage the market through an inspiring entrepreneurship education experience of creation, competition and community.
Entrepreneurship is a viable alternative to predefined, traditional career tracks that may not suit all members of our community. We see entrepreneurship education as a community solution that empowers members, especially our youth, with the skills and experiences they need to compete in a blossoming creative economy.
For this event, selected teens are placed on teams that compete through the week-end in various phases of creating a business. In the final phase the teams will present their ideas to a live audience and a set of “Angel Investor” judges. The team with the most points through the week-end will win the competition, but all youth will walk away a winner.
Event 2 – TOPGOLF Charity Event
On March 2, 2017, Computer Mentors will host its very first Top Golf Charity Event. This is a fundraising event to support programming initiatives of Computer Mentors. Proceeds from the event will provide technology tools and education to Tampa kids and teens as part of Computer Mentors’ KidsCode and STEM Corps High School programs.
The event will feature a fun golf tournament-like entertainment event at Tampa’s Top Golf facility. Though it’s a fundraiser, the emphasis of this event will be on FUN. Food and a fun for everyone will be the order of the day in this afternoon event.
Sponsors are invited to participate by sponsoring the event, and also by allowing employees and/or associates participate. There will be prizes and awards during the event.
*PLEASE NOTE: As of November 1st, 2016 the TOPGOLF Charity Event has been canceled.*
