Say yes to supporting NZ Girl Geeks!

Here's an alternative sponsorship request for you!

Microsoft & Girl Geek Dinners are hosting a special Girl Geek Dinner at Tech Ed this year on Monday the 1st September. There will be around 300 women at this event at Sky City in Auckland.

As a novel form of advertising, NZ Girl Geek Dinners are going to hand out free t-shirts during the Girl Geek Dinner at TechEd and at the TechEd conference itself. This is as an alternative to handing out flyers. The t-shirts will also be available from the Microsoft Stand and any other company stands who will let us cadge some space - hint hint.

We are looking for sponsors to help cover the costs of making the t-shirts. Sponsorship for t-shirts will cost $500 per business.

In return for sponsoring us you'd get your logo on the back of the t-shirt and on our National and Wellington websites. I am keen to give our existing and previous sponsors first dibs at this and will be limiting the number of sponsors so that the t-shirt doesn't become too cluttered with logos.

But why should you help us? Girl Geek Dinners aim to promote learning in a technology environment and encourage more women into this field. We want to enthuse the next generation of girly geeks and with your help we can reach more people.

Email by the 15th of August if you are keen to be on our fantastic t-shirts. We must have sponsorship payment in our national account by the 22nd August in time to print the t-shirts for TechEd. You will also need to provide us with a high quality logo that we can give to the t-shirt designer so that you look your best on our t-shirts. &
