The idea of Onspon started when as the sponsorship manager of our college fests, we had to hunt down brands based on relationships rather than event metrices (and they were students – so had limited time and team size). Couple of years later, sitting on the brand side, when they had to plan a brand outreach – it was almost impossible to find / evaluate and close conversations with millions of events (local or happening across the world). Leave apart small events – it was difficult to even evaluate high decibel events like premier leagues on a single comparative chart.
Hence Onspon is the place where best events get access to millions of event audience and thousands of brands.
