Rally Ventures and Sport Ngin recently announced their launch of The Pitch. The two companies want to help grow sports technology businesses and they are trying to make this happen by providing an environment that will help spark innovation. The new Minneapolis-based sports technology hub will hopefully bring together great minds with diverse sports tech backgrounds, in order to help foster greater innovation.
The sports technology market is growing everyday, and The Pitch is here to help startups, entrepreneurs, and businesses grow. This shared workspace will help promote new developments through interaction.
Sport Ngin is based in Minneapolis. They provide web software and mobile applications for teams and leagues at all levels, helping build websites, manage communication and registration and much more. Rally Ventures is an investment company specializing in technology startups. They have offices in Silicon Valley, as well as Minnesota. Their goal is to empower early-stage companies to become as innovative as possible.
The Pitch’s goal is to become an entrepreneurial hub for sports technology businesses. Their office space will foster an environment of accelerated innovation. Early-stage companies will have the chance to bounce ideas off of one another, as well as seeking the guidance of mentors and advisors. Members of The Pitch will be able to utilize Sport Ngin’s platforms and their array of clients. Sports startups who join will also be able to interact with more established sports technology companies, as well as investors.
July 12th is their official opening day. A wide range of applications to join this sports technology hub are currently being accepted. There are four different levels of applications: Fan, Workbar, Desk and Team. The options range from $95 per month for three days of “casual coworking,” to $299 per person/month, which will allow a sports tech startup to utilize all the perks The Pitch has to offer.
The cost of renting office space and providing the array of amenities that The Pitch has to offer are often far too costly for most startups and entrepreneurs. Their office space will be open 24/7. Members will be able to use conference rooms, professional A/V equipment and attend workshops.
When The Pitch opens its doors next month it is sure to provide an exciting atmosphere for sports technology startups. It shouldn’t be too long before this innovation hub helps spark some of the next great sports tech ideas.
