Delegations will consist of around 10 scaleups and will be given the opportunity to represent their country and bring the exposure to their disruptive technologies on the global stage. Sponsorship packages for delegations will provide the delegation scaleups with all the benefits of the Scaleup Exhibition package listed here. The sponsor will also get branding & promotion at the conference as a sponsor of that particular delegation.
You as a chapter director will help bring the sponsor and also vet and select the scaleups from your region who will be a part of it. Looking to lead your next delegation? Please contact jamilah@startupgrind.com for more info.
