Benefits of becoming the sponsor
Benefit 1 - show your company as AI leader
It is becoming more and more important for companies to keep up with AI developments and implementation. It is crucial not only for their future strategies but also for meeting investors and market expectations. Companies and corporations pour lots of money into their AI tools and - understandably - want to communicate that to the outside world. When you are a technology player the task couldn’t be easier. It becomes a little bit more of a hussle when your company’s image is not associated with IT. One of our previous sponsors - LVMH Moët Hennessy is a French multinational corporation and conglomerate specializing in luxury goods. The company wanted to show to their investors and customers that not only they take care of the highest quality of their merchandise but also it is a technology leader in the market. Fashion industry also needs strony support from technology and Kaggle Days event helped the world to see that.
Benefit 2 - the participants are top players in Data Science game
Kaggle Days participants consist of skilled and talented experts. Our team put lots of work into selecting the audience according to demanding rules. Every participant has to have at least 3 years of professional experience, high ranked on Kaggle, fluent in R and Python. All that together makes them great potential employees, contractors or partners gathered all in one place. The wide range of conference activities - from workshops through brainstorms to data science competitions will allow you to really get to know people, see what they are capable of, how they work and network. This is the hiring and recruiting heaven - no HR agency is able to provide similar experience.
Benefit 3 - 150 talented data scientists will solve your business problem during brainstorming sessions and the data science competition
As a sponsor you will have the unique chance to come up with business problems for brainstorming sessions and the competition day. For the brainstorming session you will have the chance to pick everyone’s brains on issues your company struggles with or wants to improve. LVMH provided participants with 2 problems: One-timers – how to analyze customers with one transaction? and Building competitive advantage by discount personalization. During the all-day hackathon, the participants (in teams or individually) will tackle the problem to come up with the best solution. Every sponsor can provide their own data set and define the problem. At the end of the competition, together with experts, you will choose the solution that will work best for your company. Needless to say you get all the rights to use the solution commercially. For example, LVMH’s idea for the Kaggle Days competition was: Predict sales for the 3 month period since product launch.
Benefit 4 - implementat Corporate Social Responsibility
Employees’ volunteering programs or planting trees in a local park is not good enough anymore if you want your company to stay relevant in the CSR game. Being a part of Kaggle Days is a great opportunity to build and support a worldwide community and create possibilities for great projects and knowledge transfer to happen. The event is non-profit, Kaggle Grandmaster take part in conferences free of charge.
Benefit 5 - take your employees with you
As a sponsor you have a number of spots available for your employees who don’t need to get through the selection process described above. They can come and hang out throughout the whole conference - learn, network, have fun and embrace the whole experience alongside other participants.
