Some more ideas for you, in case you continue your project:
Lets say you find a suitable hosting provider that fulfills your
automation requirements and offers reasonable unmetered instances but
might be to costly for a single sponsor.
Instead of "offering" relays (only) - that, depending on the actual
price, might represent a high entry barrier - you could "offer" tor
network capacity. That is actually what matters.
Every sponsor can support X mbps of the next upcoming relay for a
year, once the next relay is financed you can fire it up. If the
sponsor wants his own tor instance name he has to provide for at least
1/2 of the relay cost (if you run lets say two tor instances per server)
Such an approach could lower the entry barrier for potential sponsors.
(You will probably want to limit the minimal amount to some reasonable
Regarding requirements for automation (hosting provider), I guess
these are the minimal
- - automatic order submission (I assume payment is taken care of
automatically by charging the account's credit card)
- - get the IP address of the new server
- - pre authorized SSH public key on every new server
Ansible could take care of the rest.

It doesn't have to be a human.
