Georgia Projects Requiring Sponor Backing
Each year the Ritz Group, because of our presence the marketplace, identifies multiple projects or opportunities that can make a difference in helping fund more early-stage entrepreneurial companies. When worthy, we SPOTLIGHT them to identify leadership to drive, funding and launch the project. The following represent the projects for 2022 that require ecosystem, corporate backing, Sponsors, promotion and funding.
THE GEORGIA CAPITAL EXPO
The Georgia Capital Expo is a Virtual Trade Show for the Georgia Entrepreneurial Ecosystem that replicates an annual physical Trade Show.
The Capital Expo Virtual Platform is unique, in that it hosts multiple Trade Shows, called Pavilions, on one platform. Pavilion owners have their own Virtual Space they create and mange. Pavilion Event Producers brand their LOBBY, Aisles, Exhibitors and Auditorium. They approve Exhibitors and set sponsor pricing for their Lobby, Aisles, and Auditorium. Pavilion Owners examples are Venture Atlanta, TIE, Ritz Group, The Farm, or a University. It is anyone who incubate Entrepreneurs.
The virtual goal is identical to the physical goal. Feature the Event Producer, their programs and their Exhibitors - organized by categories, called Aisles they define.
It is their SHOW within the Georgia Capital Expo and visitors can SEARCH the venue or "swipe left" on each aisle displaying the most popular or featured Exhibitors.
The goal with Capital Expo is to make it a no charge event for Entrepreneurs, students, and non-profit organizations. The funding for the Virtual Capital Expo will be provided by 5 to 10 corporate sponsors active in supporting our community Entrepreneur Ecosystem. Sponsors can also Sponsor specific Events, Lobby's, Ailes and Auditoriums. This money is posted directly in the Pavilion Owners Direct Deposit Account. The Capital Expo GOAL is to share 75% of that revenue with participating Event stakeholders.
