Can I post application deadlines?
Absolutely! Post the open date and the deadline date as two separate events. “Application Opens” and “Application Deadline”. Be sure to select the “Application Deadline” category so that it will show up on our separate Application calendar as well as the general calendar.
How do I get featured in your newsletter?
Each week we send out a newsletter that highlights 1-2 events on each day that entrepreneurs should attend. We also include “Featured Events” that highlight two events.
If you want your event listed as one of the two featured events email us at email@example.com to learn more about newsletter sponsorship.
Newsletter sponsorship includes a blurb and logo in the newsletter (goes out Monday mornings), as well as a week of social media promotions on our Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn, and an announcement on the homepage of our website.
The cost of newsletter sponsorship is $150 per week.
