Explorers

Explorers are trying to make sense of the sports tech landscape. They want to understand trends. They want to be able to make sense of vendor pitches, and stop drowning in information. They want to be proactive in outreach to partners. They want to figure out when to begin investing and where.

Our platform gives Explorers the sports technology market data that empowers them, by organizing and making sense of a complicated sports-tech ecology.

Evangelists

Evangelists are already aware of the huge opportunities in sports-tech for them and their company. They're knowledgable about the sector, but need some data to support their case. They're trying to convince their company about who to hire, where to invest, and how to partner in this space. They need sizing models and credible proof points that go well beyond what they can get in journals.

Our platform gives Evangelists the tools to develop insightful, scientific arguments about sports technology.

Our platform gives Accelerators the actionable network and market data, that propels their business.
