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, promotion and funding.
THE GEORGIA CAPITAL EXPO
The 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 Event Producers on one platform and has a MAIN LOBBY where the visitors select the Event Producer venue they want to enter. Event Producer examples are Venture Atlanta, TIE, Ritz Group or The Farm.
Each Event Producer sets up their own Venue, to include their Aisles, Lounge, Auditorium Content and Sponsor Pricing.
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 Show 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 and students, as well as the Event Producers. The funding for the Virtual Capital Expo will be provided by 5 to 10 corporate sponsors active in supporting our community ecosystem. Additional Sponsors can also Sponsor specific Events, their lobby, exhibit halls, auditorium. The Capital Expo GOAL is to share 75% of that revenue with participating Event stakeholders.
