For Business: Australian Owned and iSponsor: partnering to boost investment in Australian communities

Australian Owned are pleased to announce the signing of a new partnership with the giving platform iSponsor.  This partnership will provide Australian Owned businesses recognition of their certification via the iSponsor platform, assisting businesses to build their Aussie owned brand and positively market their products and services to a larger audience.

iSponsor is an easy to use app, making the process of raising funds for local sporting clubs and charities simple whilst growing community support for local businesses through the iSponsor giving platform. 

Connecting community groups such as sporting clubs and charities directly with local businesses helps expand business customer base and increase profitability and gives these groups the investment they need.  

This partnership is a win-win for Aussie owned businesses and local clubs and charitable organisations.  Not to mention the helping hand it gives to consumers, conscious of supporting Aussie owned.  

Becoming official partners gives Australian Owned Certified businesses the opportunity to register to iSponsor, now another benefit of being certified with Australian Owned, and receive official recognition of Australian ownership, a point of difference to other business listings on the app.  Customers using the app will be able to easily identify Australian Owned business to support with the addition of the Australian Owned Certified logo next to certified business profiles.

“Partnering with iSponsor just makes sense,” said Eddie Kocwa from Australian Owned.

“With aligning business missions, our partnership with iSponsor will help support the Aussie owned business community even further, giving them a new captive audience from the clubs and organisations they choose to partner with.

“Our vision has been to build transparency and trust in the Australian Owned Certified logo for both business and consumer.  The logo has a strong message – support this business and profits stay in Australia.  Now customers can shop with confidence, knowing they are supporting Aussie owned and supporting their local club at the same time.”

iSponsor CEO and Founder, Richard Siganto, agreed the partnership was a natural fit.  

“iSponsor was created to help Australian sporting clubs, charities and other NFPs as well as drive more business to local Australian businesses. When we found out about Australian Owned it was only natural that we try to partner with them on some level. This partnership makes sense on many levels but the biggest one is to have Australians support Australians.”

Australian Owner General Manager, Kristy Ponting, said this was an exciting step for Australian Owned certified businesses.

“Our mission is to give businesses the tools to grow, assisting to strengthen communities through jobs and investment,” said General Manager, Kristy Ponting.

“This new partnership with iSponsor is the next step towards achieving this mission and I am looking forward to seeing our growing register of Australia Owned Certified businesses jump at the opportunity,” said Ms Ponting.
