Partnership Benefits

Join our Community

A GOCSD Partnership gives those who work with, support, and seek to do business with GOCSD members, a point of connection and involvement. This partnership is a mutually beneficial relationship between our organization and businesses. Our partners, have the opportunity to:

  • Connect with our extensive network of members

  • Gain exposure to a new audience

  • Share their expertise and resources

  • Promote their business to a highly engaged community

Our Partners are the GO-to vendors for our members when seeking a service or product. This partnership does not imply endorsement by GOCSD.

A partnership runs Jan-Dec with the option to renew each year. We are currently accepting new partners and a prorated fee may be requested. Bundle a Partnership with an Innovation Summit Sponsorship to receive a discount, as explained below. Use the button below to submit the inquiry form and have the Partnership Registration information sent to you.
