Samsung AUT Tech is a start-up accelerator supporting talented individuals in realizing their entrepreneurial visions. It is a joint effort between Samsung and Amir Kabir University of Technology (AUT) in Tehran, Iran. Samsung AUT Tech is a part of Samsung’s CSR activities inside Iran.
Last year, Samsung AUT Tech asked Netbina to run a campaign for its very first Formation Camp, in which soon-to-be entrepreneurs could find potential teammates, develop and fine-tune their ideas.
This was a new undertaking, as previously only complete teams with fully developed ideas and MVPs (Minimum Viable Product) could take part in the accelerator program. The campaign was to attract bright, enthusiastic individuals and encourage them to realize their potential at Samsung AUT Tech.
Targeting the right minds
As the Formation Camp was a novel program at Samsung AUT Tech, it was crucial to find and target the corresponding niche audience. The goals and prospects of the program had to then be accurately communicated to this specific audience, as well as what was expected of the participants.
In order to achieve this, the campaign team at Netbina collaborated with a number of tech and startup influencers whose audiences belonged to our target niche. The influencers directed intrigued followers to Samsung AUT Tech’s Instagram, on which Netbina regularly published content further introducing program phases and objectives.
