About the Company:
Sponsorist was a marketplace that facilitates sponsorship transactions between two parties. For every sponsorship that is sold, a portion goes to a non-profit of the listing user’s choice.
Sponsorist was the idea of Rosstamicah’s Rosston Meyer, who originally conceived the idea while working at a large non-profit organization in South Florida seeing a need for a crowdfunding style sponsorship platform. Sponsorist was part of the Venture Hive business accelerator profgram in 2013. Three iterations of the platform were created over three years and the company was featured in CNN Money, Business Interviews, and The Palm Beach Post.
