We Perform With

Speed. Agility. Enthusiasm.

Caravel helps organizations succeed in many ways, but we excel at sponsorship marketing partnerships. Our crew of subject matter experts have traveled great distances, worn many hats, learned a lot along the way, and achieved big results. We know how to develop meaningful and mutually beneficial sponsorship programs, and we have a good time doing it.

Our name originates from the 15th century caravel ship, whose speed and agility earned it the esteemed reputation as the best sailing vessel of its time. Like the vessel, Caravel is adaptable and versatile, allowing us to move swiftly and efficiently.
