In a few projects part of my responsibilities was the procuring of financing, in other words finding sponsors.
– At the Binnenhoffestival in The Hague I was involved in merchandising and sponsor acquisition.
– For Reade I procured christmas presents for the 450 employees.
– A workshop of one day about Gay Marketing for 80 members of Genius was sponsored by a few dozen companies, with a total value of € 20.000.
– For GayDay@Efteling I had 25 suppliers commit to the day, so that we could give all 1,500 participants a goodie bag with a value of € 100.
– To participate in the annual Amsterdam Pride Parade I managed to cover a budget of € 18,000, by finding 1 main sponsor and several minor ones.
