I fear that a single post on debian-project is unlikely to reach
the aforementionned companies. You should see with the Debian Press team
if you can send out a news on debian-news@ and maybe relay the information
in other places too (blogs, journalists, etc.).
Or maybe you can ask the Debconf sponsorship team which probably has a few
contacts with companies that would fit.
That said I have never been a big fan of the restrictive policy on that
list. I'm ok for it to not be public. But I don't understand why
interested DD aren't allowed to subscribe to it. I also don't understand
what the minimum size requirement brings.
