Wanted: T-Shirt Sponsors for BarCamp Tokyo
By jimgris on May 02, 2009
The planning for BarCamp Tokyo
is coming along nicely. I see over 100 people signed up to attend, and
there is a lot of buzz about who will present during BarCamp on May 16th. The venue is all set, too. There are six
sponsors so far: O'Reilly, Opera Software, Sun Microsystems, Tokyo2Point0, Sapphire Interactive, Fujimamas.
All of us organizing BarCamp greatly appreciate the efforts and
resources those sponsors are contributing to this community effort.
However, there is one last item we need sponsorship for: T-Shirts.
This is a big deal. We need a shirt to wear. And we are really looking
forward to creating an original BarCamp Tokyo t-shirt that blows
people away and makes sponsors proud to be involved. I'm not talking
about some half-baked design just to have a shirt. I'm talking about
something with some style. Something beautiful. Something everyone
wants. Remember, we are building an multi-level international community
in Tokyo -- a community of communities that calls Tokyo home but reaches right
around the world into well-established and emerging markets and interesting new communities. In other
words, it's big. Heck, Tokyo is big enough, but that's not big enough
for us. Tokyo = Global.
So, there you have it. There are sponsorship opportunities open for companies to get directly involved in BarCamp Tokyo and contribute to some cool shirts. Interested? Check in with Karamoon (here, here, here). Or leave me a comment here. Or mail me at jimgris at sun dot com.
