I’m Managing Director of the Techstars Sports Accelerator, which we launched in 2019. At Techstars Sports, we invest $120,000/company in 10 startups per year, and provide tremendous resources and support to help accelerate them from Seed to Series A. Both of my startups, CoachUp.com and Draft.com went through Techstars Boston back when we just were fledgling ideas, and I love being able now to have that kind of impact on top founders building the the next generation of sports tech companies.
Headquartered in Indianapolis, our team includes nearly 150 mentors who are the leaders working at the intersection of sports, innovation and venture capital, along with our incredible partners: The Next Level Fund, NCAA, Indiana Pacers, Indiana Sports Corp, Indianapolis Colts and Indianapolis Motor Speedway/IndyCar. The entire city of Indianapolis has rallied together to make Indy a global home for sports tech innovation, and Im thrilled to be playing a part in growing the industry and proving that it can be done not only on the coasts, but also in the mid-west.
