Lunch & Learn: The Pivot Point Of Understanding And Listening To Your Customers
Date and Time
Sportility is the first and only platform in the world that connects grassroots sports directly to businesses globally for sponsorship opportunities, granting them access to affordable and professional gear.
After launching as a custom apparel brand which provided cost-effective, high-quality gear and functionality to
simplify the way teams, leagues and clubs managed apparel, Sportility scaled to over 25,000 members and quickly
recognised the struggle for grassroots sports to afford quality gear on limited budgets. Following discussions
with businesses looking to tap into the highly influential grassroots sports market, they realised the unique
opportunity to connect the two.
Through technology, co-founders, Adam Hyman and Dan Harsanyi created a One-Click Sponsorship model, saving teams/clubs
up to 40% in costs simply by giving them the option to place up to three business sponsor logos on the design of their gear.
Now, with 80,000 members and Andrew Bogut as a global ambassador and investor, Sportility is scaling at a rapid rate with plans to expand internationally from 2020.
