SUGSA Monthly Meetup Sponsorship Opportunities
The Scrum User Group of South Africa (SUGSA) is the first official Scrum Alliance user group in Africa. SUGSA is a non-profit group, run by a committee of volunteers. We look to local businesses for sponsorship in order to create a thriving community that benefits us all.
SUGSA’s purpose is to create opportunities for learning, sharing or connecting in support of a healthy, vibrant community of users of agile and light-weight software development methods and processes. It aims to improve the agile practices in South Africa by sharing experiences of success and failure, good practices, and expert presentations.
In order to achieve this aim, SUGSA organises monthly events in Cape Town and Johannesburg. Each event provides the opportunity to learn from one or more speakers, or to participate in interactive workshops, as well as to meet other community members.
The events take place on the last Thursday of every month at 6pm in the evening in Cape Town and on the second Wednesday of every month at 6pm in Johannesburg. Drinks and snacks are served beforehand, creating the opportunity for members and guests to exchange ideas and network.
These events have grown in popularity and currently attract between 40 and 100 people at each event. Attendees are usually agile practitioners from a variety of roles: developers, testers, analysts, Product Owners, Scrum Masters and managers. It also attracts those interested in learning about agile who are not yet practicing it in their current environment.
