Why do companies/organizations sponsor `free & open source software` events?
The most common answer would be ‘Marketing’. On a second thought, companies/organizations have another good reason to do that, especially `foss & open source` based start-up’s.
Wondering what that could be?
Supposedly, it one of the best ways to express that they support FOSS community. The priority between marketing and showing support could vary for each company.
In the end, it matters that they have supported.
One such wonderful ground is mukt.in; should we say mukt.in v2 or mukt.in 2008.
We are trying to create multitude opportunities of marketing for sponsoring companies by providing banner space on venue, logos on mukt.in website, conference hall banners, slots for talks to demo company’s products/service, job center and more.
This serves true for any domain, be it product development or a service company.
Details of sponsorship opportunities are available in our sponsorship brochure.
