You are being impatient. Give it time, and don't assume you're being snubbed if you get no answers. No one owes a response to anyone else here. "A couple of hours" is a bit hair-trigger.
Another possible approach: Since you're looking for some sort of sponsership (approximately), an absence of response *might* indicate a need to work on your delivery. Work on it, until it's demonstrably irresistible. Consider the opportunity to hone your postings for maximum impact a valuable gift from participants here.
