PROBLEM & SOLUTION

Finding sports venues or courses is difficult and frustrating. The lack of transparency in the supply results in endless phone calls at different facilities and lots of rejections are the regular case. The reason for that is most sports facilities are either managed offline with a paper calendar or with Microsoft Excel.

Venuzle is the marketplace that helps sports people to easily search, compare, and book sports venues or courses at the desired time and place. It gives a transparent overview of the sports opportunities and availabilities.

Sports Portal: https://venuzle.at/

To get the information about avail-abilities online, Venuzle developed an award-winning SaaS management tool that fits all kinds of sports providers and reduces the management effort by more than 70% (Austrian Municipality Award: Category „Best Management Innovation“).

USP’s

The one-stop booking platform for sports enthusiasts and venue providers

VISION

Venuzle will digitize the public and private sports sector in order to make the access to sports facilities user-friendly and connect sports people and teams.

MARKET & COMPETITION

Market size: venue/court booking volume: > € 90bn
Sports courses booking volume: > € 20bn
Marketplace customers: > 200mio

Competitors: Two marketplaces for sports in the DACH region (Eversports and easysport) and one in the UK (openplay).

USP: Focus on municipalities/public supply: Venuzle‘s SaaS backend is the only tool that focusses on municipalities‘ needs AND is able to serve private clubs, studios and trainers.

Why? > 60% of all sports offers are in public hand.
Having the public supply available on the marketplace first minimizes the acquisition costs of the private sector.

BUSINESS MODEL

Venuzle takes 5% of each online transaction (B2C) via the sports portal (paid by the provider) and subscription fees (B2B) for the use of the SaaS management tool (depending on the size of the provider/facility).
