leAD takes sports tech startups from an idea to Series A
We've closed applications for the leAD SPORT1 Accelerator Class of 2019. In case you are a sports tech startup, you can still send us your pitch deck. We'll get in touch when applications are open.
The leAD Business Builder team provides direction and guidance for the follow-on investments and helps the companies tackle tricky issues that come up at the crucial development stage of the startups.
ADvantage is the first truly global sports tech fund. The $50M Series A fund aims to fundamentally change the future of sports by investing in technologies and entrepreneurs.
leAD is backed by an exclusive circle of international top investors with a strong foothold in the sports industry.
