Become a Sponsor

Support for our group is important. Funding is not only necessary for us to maintain our activ­ities; it is also a strong support statement for our purpose and goals.

GRNOG is not a legal entity; hence we cannot directly accept money. Instead, we ask our sponsors to cover a part of our costs by providing goods or services necessary for our activ­ities, or paying on our behalf
invoices issued for such goods and services.


Patrons are perpetual sponsors of our continuing effort — not just sponsors of a specific event. They have agreed to support us on a regular basis, by providing goods or services of a value of at least 1500€ per year*. The title of a Patron is awarded regardless of whether we will be able to absorb their support or not.

* Indicative goods/services that are considered equiv­alent:
— Providing a venue for a GRNOG conference,
— Providing lunch or dinner for a GRNOG conference

Event Sponsors

Event sponsors assist us to cover expenses related to a specific event. The following sponsoring packages are available:

  • Golden Sponsors: 1000€ — 1500€ per event
  • Silver Sponsors: 500€ — 1000€ per event
  • Bronze Sponsors: 200€ — 500€ per event

* Indicative goods/services that are considered equiv­alent:
Providing streaming -> Silver,
Providing coffee & beverages at coffee breaks -> Bronze

Supporting Companies

Supporting companies express their support for our group and our activ­ities, without providing any material help or covering any actual costs. Supporting companies are only required to:

  • provide a letter, stating their support to our group and efforts, and mentioning that their staff is encouraged to partic­ipate in our activ­ities
  • mention their support to our group in their site, including our GRNOG support” logo and a link to our web page.
