Any chance this will come stateside?

There's probably a bigger opportunity to create a platform where businesses and non-profits can discover each other. Why limit it to schools? Think of conventions, artists/musicians, neighborhood programs, etc.

Hey guys!

I've built Sponsor My Society to enable income struggling UK university societies and sports clubs to be able to provide more for their members by partnering with some incredible companies (at no cost to the society/club!).

Throughout my time at Lancaster University, UK, I've been heavily involved with student societies, and noticed both the lack of support for funding, and the scope of companies looking to work with students. To take advantage of this I've built a platform that articulates affiliate schemes and promotes sponsorship opportunities from a range of different companies, in the hope of helping societies and sports clubs that need that extra hand. It's been very exciting watching an idea I've had for months transform into an engaging platform over the last few weeks, and to be working with some very exciting companies is a great feeling!

University clubs and societies are an untapped resource, and there are hundreds of them at every university, hosting hundreds or thousands of members. With the popularity of influencer marketing on the rise and companies increasingly targeting students, why should clubs/societies be any different?

It would be great to hear any feedback, comments or concerns.
Thanks for looking, and have a great day!

This is a really great idea! I ran the Entrepreneurship society at Bath Uni and the amount of money we had, and therefore quality of events we could put on, was really limited by the fact that I wasn't very well connected with companies looking to sponsor societies. The guy that came in the year after was very well connected and the society did tonnes more activities, gained loads more members etc.

I think this could help to make sure that the quality of a society remains fairly constant year on year, rather than having some lacklustre years and some incredible ones.

Good work 👍

Rad work on this Jack! I ran a sports club during undergrad and definitely am aware of pain points here. It'd be interesting to hear a little more about the process for connecting the club and sponsor? And how you're thinking to expand?
