Woot! How does it work?
Each month Waffle.io will sponsor two tech /dev meetups in US & Canada (first come, first served). The sponsorship entails $10 per pre-registrant up to 75 people.
If your expect your Meetup Event to exceed 75 pre-registrants and the $750 limit, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss a custom sponsorship.
Sweet! How do I sign up?
1) Create a Collective for your Meetup group.
2) Open an Event for registrants to sign up.
Easy! What does Waffle.io expect in return?
Choose 1 of 2 options:
Waffle will send 1 email to your pre-registrants extending access to a free Waffle.io trial.
Have Waffle.io Developer Advocate, Adam Zolyak present a 5 minute lightening talk to open your Event.
Wait, I don’t have the pre-registrants emails!
Yes you do, the event on your open collective gives you access to the attendees info to print name tags and email them.
Please note: that Waffle.io will use a dedicated email (:eventslug@:collectiveslug.opencollective.com) that reaches the attendees, you don’t have to provide their email address.
Last one, I don’t have a bank account for our meetup, how do I get the $$?
Worry not! That’s what Open Collective is all about, we provide your meetup with a virtual organization you can use to receive the sponsorship and spend it transparently. More info: https://opencollective.com/learn-more
