Cloudera and User Groups/Meetups
Cloudera is a proud supporter and sponsor of user/meetup groups around the world focusing on Apache Hadoop, Apache HBase, Big Data, Data Science/BI/Analytics, Java, and Cloudera Manager.
Annual Sponsorships (US & Canada only)
Annual sponsorships are available at three levels, depending on the size, activity level, and maturity of your group. They take the form of annual cash grants that you can apply to food & beverage, meeting space, Website infrastructure, logo design, or anything else that serves the group’s interest. We’ll also ship you a stockpile of T-shirts or other swag to distribute at your meetings across the year.
|Level Name||Requirements||Annual Grant Amount|
|Startup Level||Your group must have a name, organizer, and functional Web page||US$250|
|Organizing Level||At least 4 meetings per year averaging 25 attendees or more||US$500 (nonprofit status required)|
|Cruising Level||At least 8 meetings per year averaging 50 attendees or more||US$1000 (nonprofit status required)|
In return, we only ask that you acknowledge Cloudera as a sponsor on your site along with our logo and a link to cloudera.com – and send us some photos from your meetings, from time to time!
Ad Hoc Sponsorships
Instead of an annual sponsorship, ad hoc sponsorships for individual meetings are possible on a case-by-case basis; we’ll also provide speakers whenever schedules and geography allow. However an annual sponsorship gives you much more flexibility because funds can be applied to things beyond food & beverage. (Note: groups on the “Annual” plan are ineligible for Ad Hoc sponsorships.)
