Frequently Asked Questions:
Can I apply from outside the hosting region and country?
Absolutely. Applications are welcome from outside the hosting region and country. If you see yourself as high potential company in the areas of sports-innovation, do apply. Some of our programs may offer travel and support assistance as well.
What stage of a startup are you looking for?
We are looking for sports innovation companies with the highest potential for growth and return on investment. Selected startups cover a wide range of sectors, product stages and sizes. Whilst significant revenue is a strong validation of your business model, we still value other metrics to assess your growth potential.
Can I apply as a single founder?
We are excited about working with founders who are really passionate about solving a big problem and have taken the first steps to building something that customers find valuable. While we have found that teams with multiple co-founders are able to dramatically improve their positioning and offering following the program, we do occasionally invest in single founders. Typically a single founder has a product with customer traction and is actively seeking a co-founder, which is something we can also help you with.
