NY2020 sponsors

Sponsoring Lead Dev is a fantastic way to reach an audience of engaged technical leaders. But don't just take our word for it – we asked our previous sponsors: Did you feel it was worthwhile sponsoring the event?

Softwire: "The diversity and inclusion sponsorship is a perfect fit for us. We don’t usually sponsor conferences so to be able to have a direct impact on conference diversity is brilliant. The experience has been great and I will be recommending that we do it again next year."

Twitter: "Yes, great conversations, exposure for our teams, hiring and office. Our teams were very excited to be able to attend, as well as showcase their work and network."

Financial Times: "We would like to thank you for your support throughout the Lead Developer conference and partnership this year. We felt thoroughly supported as partners, the event was well organised and our diversity scholar guides had very high praise for the whole event."
