How Cyphtr generates leads & grows your company:
Cyphtr's relationship-vetting algorithms provide data-imaging that leverages networks, monitors networking event results, & routinely updates pre-existing CRMs. We are the social media hub for all platforms by creating a virtual business card with a networking feature that notifies your social media contacts that are at the same event or nearby of your networking availability and preferred mode of contact temporarily. We scale, measure, and vet those relationships with our patent-pending algorithm into a literal, virtual network tree with leaves that are colored, shaped, and sized according to the overall influence potential you have with each network leveraging connection from your social media. It’s hard to showcase that you’re Linkedin friends with star players, but with Cyphtr- we cherry-pick and showcase them while also advertising the industries and verticals each of you are most influential in. We take it one step further and tag your leaves with the official hashtags from the events, locations, and companies responsible for both initiating and/or growing your relationship continuously. A few days after you’ve turned off networking mode, Cyphtr asks if you met up with any of the previously mentioned friends nearby at any point and if your relationship grew, recalibrating appropriately. These trees are on a map in real time, helping you find where the type of folks are that you want to connect to, and if you have any mutual connections to help you get that foot in the door.
What we are exclusively offering our sponsors is a chance to measure and prove the types of connections that are made at their events in the future to better plan and advocate for the next one:
Free data analytics from your next event for up to 250 people for those donating $500 or less (not applicable for service only donations)
Free data analytics from your next event for up to 600 people for those donating up to $1000 (not applicable for service only donations)
Free data analytics from your next event for up to 2k people for those donating $3000 and more (not applicable for service only donations)

Be a Mentor
Each mentor will have their own area displayed with their photo, experience, and specialization (please email these to AliJones@cyphtr.com). During the mentor hour, entrepreneurs will rotate every ten minutes to the next mentor. The entrepreneurs are not allowed to pitch, but simply answer the questions listed below. This experience is not to provide the answer to their problem necessarily, but to help face them in the right direction with a contact or piece of missing information.

Perhaps you’d like to donate a portion of your product or service to be consumed or used throughout the event? Please email AliJones@cyphtr.com with your interests.
Sponsor a Coffee Bar
While libations are all the rage, coffee is there to save us from a long work day and rev up for networking, food, music, and maybe even give us the energy to keep the party going at a karaoke after party if you’re feeling dangerous.
Sponsor Professional Headshots
Nothing says “tech event” in Nola like a headshot opportunity. All the professionals have them, and it’s time to get a fresh one for the holidays anyway. Use this opportunity to get the whole office up to date! We have some great photographers, but if you’d like to use your own, just let us know! Email any requests to AliJones@cyphtr.com.
pitch in towards the Cash Prize
Show your support for rising, southern entrepreneurs by providing either a dollar amount towards your company’s services or pool in for a super sized check with your cash. For payment inquiries, recommendation or reference letters, and any other documentation concerns, please email AliJones@cyphtr.com for more information.
Sponsor a Photo Booth
This photo was actually taken at a riot of a mini cast party actually held at Shamrock after filming Jack Reacher 2. The photo booth perfectly captured the fun being had, giving it immortality to that unforgettable moment. We don’t get many launch parties in New Orleans, so help Cyphtr remember this one forever.
Sponsor the decorations and signage
Shamrock is an adult-only version of Dave & Busters with plenty of space to dance or have one-on-one meetings. We’ve rented out the whole building to network and break the ice with targeted attendees. Does you company specialize in decor or event planning? Showcase your skills and transform the space into a tech wonderland. Our venue was picked for the story of the experience over a swanky, yet boring space with furniture you’re too scared to sit on and ruin accidentally. If not just simply sponsor the purchases and our founder & CEO will put her old EA skills on display. Questions? AliJones @cyphtr.com
Sponsor the Drink Tickets
Keep the party flowing with free drink tickets. Each ticket is $6 and includes a 20% tip already. While over 2k entrepreneurs, investors, consultants, speakers, and more are invited, it is anticipated that at least 500-1k will actually show. Drink tickets will be handed out to the first to arrive with a special back stock for sponsor’s and sponsors’ guests.
Sponsor the Catering
Are you in the catering or restaurant business? If so we’d love to have you cater Cyphtr’s launch party! This quote was generated from a previously used catering company local to New Orleans. Suggestions are welcome if you simply just want to sponsor the food and choose a specific company of your preference.
Sponsor the Live Music
While we are happy to use whatever band you see fit, we have a personal connection to the Phunky Monkeys. As one of Razzoo’z lead bands, we are hoping to get sponsorship in time to book them! The photo above was taken from one of their gigs we attended. They’re always down for requests and King at reading a crowd. By sponsoring this option, you’ll be sure to have attendees thanking you and asking if they’ll be at your next event, all night.
