From signature annual charity functions, to event series around networking and professional development, there are opportunities at multiple levels to gain exposure to the young professional demographic in the Greater Hartford Region. Please contact Julie Daly Meehan at jdmeehan@metrohartford.com or 860-728-2297 to discuss the options available.


HYPE Cup is an event series where HYPE members compete as teams in different events from August through May, in order to earn points and win the HYPE Cup Trophy. The entire season or each individual competition (from trivia to a scavenger hunt to trampoline dodgeball) is available as a sponsorship opportunity. Companies also may sponsor a HYPE Cup team. The cost is $70 per player, and there are 12 to 15 players per team.
