Startups to get 25% Sponsorship at Leading Tech Conferences, Along With Global Marketing and PR Support
Radix, the domain registry behind new domain extensions like .TECH, .STORE and .ONLINE, has announced its new Startup League initiative that went live at the end of August.
The Startup League aims to help startups with their marketing and PR efforts, by providing benefits that will “make global marketing at reputed events a reality for startups using Radix’s domain extensions, even if they are strapped for funds,” said Sandeep Ramchandani, VP & Business Head of Radix.
The benefits that the Startup League offers include a minimum 25% sponsorship on a Startup’s Exhibitor Fees at events like Techcrunch Disrupt, Websummit, SLUSH, CES, SXSW and others. Besides that, startups in the league will get media mentions and spoken about in press releases on leading platforms such as Alley Watch, Tech.eu; gain special access to highly valued premium domain names and more.
The conferences and events covered by the Startup League are reputed for the investors and media they attract, which is what makes attending them a must for any early-stage startup. To be eligible for entry into the League, the startup must have its primary website on one of Radix’s 8 domain extensions – .TECH, .STORE, .ONLINE, .SPACE, .SITE, .PRESS, .HOST or .WEBSITE.
“We believe that the right and relevant name for a startup (and its product) is the first step towards effective marketing, which is why the Startup League has been created to support startups on our distinctive domain names in their endeavours to stand out amongst the competition,” added Ramchandani.
Many startups like horus.tech, betagig.tech, eyeware.tech, devteam.space and more have joined the League prior to its launch. The League has also partnered with known startup enablers like Founders Space, Whub and Founder Institute to potentially benefit startups under the wing of these communities.
