Annual Sponsorship Opportunities

District Hall Venture Cafe Annual Sponsorships are designed for organizations and corporations that host a number of events and enjoy the benefits of collaboration and networking. Annual sponsors have the opportunity to work throughout the year with our experienced Venture Cafe team to create one of a kind programming that attracts hundreds of entrepreneurs, corporate innovators and business owners weekly.

Event Sponsorship Opportunities

District Hall and Venture Cafe Providence offer sponsors the opportunity to present one of Venture Cafe’s signature Thursday Gatherings or a District Hall Series or Popup event.

Venture Café Thursday Gatherings are conference-style events that bring together many diverse stakeholders from the Greater Providence ecosystem to knowledge-share, build meaningful relationships, and advance entrepreneurship and innovation in the region.

District Hall Series and Popup industry-specific events are outside of our Venture Cafe Thursday Gatherings. These events are usually built as an individual 1-hour event or a series of 1-hour events over a specified time period.  Series and Popup sponsors can choose to sponsor an existing event or pitch an idea to the programming team.
