Become a ChaTech Sponsor!

Sponsorships provide Ardera (a Chattanooga-owned and operated IT Solutions Provider over 42 years) a platform to help add value within our community. As a ChaTech Sponsor, we connect with like-minded individuals from diverse environments; enabling us to share actionable-ideas to help make a difference in our community. As a “seasoned,” +10 year-member of ChaTech, I strongly encourage all to get to know ChaTech. Technology is our future, Chattanooga is our home, and ChaTech helps tie it all together. – Thomas Kosik, Ardera

We invite your business to deepen your ChaTech membership by becoming a sponsor. ChaTech sponsorships increase your visibility in the technology community and support the entirety of ChaTech’s work. Your additional support as a sponsor enables us to provide outreach and education programs to youth, to award scholarships to college students, to manage peer group programs for IT professionals, to collaborate on economic development partnerships, and to offer other programs that carry out our mission. As a non-profit 501(c)3 organization, sponsorships provide about 75% of our critical annual operating revenue.

Annual Sponsors receive year-round recognition for their support that sustains the entirety of ChaTech’s work and mission. ChaTech has four sponsorship categories available to member companies at the $15,000+ Diamond, $10,000 Platinum, $5,000 Gold, $2,500 Silver, and $1,000 Bronze levels. Annual Sponsors are recognized at all ChaTech events and programs, as well as on our website. For recognition details, please refer to the table below.

Event Sponsors receive event signage and publicity leading up to the big day. Each event targets unique demographics to fit your business goals. Connect ($650 for Connect Event or $250 for Connect Social) is a monthly series centered around a hot topic for technology professionals. Scenic City Summit draws over 400 IT professionals from 70+ companies. Our Executive and Information Security forums ($1,000 sponsorship) are small, invite-only discussions featuring the top tech executives from our member companies. ChaTech Women ($250 for Social and $650 for Panel or Workshop) is an interest group for women in technology. So no matter broad or precise, ChaTech has a sponsorship to meet your needs.
