Sponsors

We are only able to run this conference with the support of sponsors that share our goal to create a wonderful, diverse and insightful event. If you are interested in sponsoring DjangoCon Africa 2020, please check out our brochure at the link below for more details.

If you have any questions or want to talk about individual sponsoring opportunities, our sponsorship team is more than happy to answer all your emails at [email protected].

Why sponsor?

If you are making that is useful to Django developers, such as developer tools, SaaS products or hosting platforms, this is the perfect marketing opportunity. Africa is a fresh and ready market; and a booth at our conference will enable to meet new potential customers for your products.

DjangoCon Africa will uphold the tradition of existing DjangoCons all over the world of investing in great efforts in being a diverse conference. Africa itself is very diverse with a total of 54 countries made up of many different ethnicities. Only with the help of our sponsors can we be able to bring people from all social backgrounds and different parts of the world together at our very first event.

There is no better place to recruit Django developers than a DjangoCon! DjangoCon Africa is the largest single gathering of Django developers in Africa. Sponsoring the very first DjangoCon Africa will put you directly in front of a fresh candidate pool.

If you use Django or related projects to build your software products, sponsoring DjangoCon Africa is a good way to give back to the community and say “thank you” to its members. Any open source community survives on the goodwill of its members and the conference is an important gathering to meet and discuss the future of Django. At the same time, sponsoring allows us to keep ticket prices affordable and even offer financial aid for developers from marginalized groups who could not otherwise join. Your own employees can profit a lot from attending DjangoCon Africa. Not only does the conference provide valuable education in form of talks and workshops that improve their professional talks and technical skills, it is also the best single place to start and build a network within a community of potential future partners.

Djangocon Africa is run by volunteers on a non-profit basis. All the money we receive will go towards covering the costs of the event and reducing the cost for our attendees.

Anything leftover will be used for supporting future non-profit events.
