|Category Selection||Reminder that events and initiatives must have occurred in the eligible period: 7 September 2020 to 12 September 2021|
|Which category is this nomination for?||Best Sponsorship Opportunity 2021|
|What was the sponsorship opportunity?||Sharesies NZ - Financial + In-Kind Oppourtunity|
|How was the opportunity integrated into what you were doing?|
Sharesies NZ sponsored UC WIB both financially and in-kind. They did this by providing $1500 cash, providing a specialised promo-code for WIB members and also providing 10 x $50 gift cards as prizes.
Our sponsorship opportunity with Sharesies was integrated seamlessly into our 2021 events as the cash was used to support our main events - "Grand Launch" and have Sharesies co-founder Brooke Roberts at our "Power-Panel". We promoted the code and awarded the gift cards at the Grand Launch to begin the year off with a strong and stable relationship with Sharies which we look to have next year.
|How did it achieve your goals and the sponsors goals?|
This sponsorship achieved our club's goals as our aim is to create confident, cable and connected women. A key aspect of this is connected to financial education around reaching the potential of their financial wealth. Having Sharesies partner with WIB allowed for our members to have a better understanding of this financial platform.
This opportunity also benefited Sharesies as we provided them with exposure to our WIB members, allowing them to empower and incentivise our members to begin their journey for financial freedom also. It also let target a female-dominated market which is a step towards closing the investment-gap.
