OurCrowd lanserar fond värd 50 miljoner dollar för Sports Tech

Israelbaserade crowdfundingplattformen för startup-företag, OurCrowd, meddelade i veckan att de lanserar en ny sports tech-fond värd 50 miljoner dollar. Fonden kallas ADvantage och har grundats i samarbete med LeAD Sports, en sports tech-accelerator som uppbackas av Adidas-familjen.

Fonden kommer att fokusera på 15 startups, bland annat företag som erbjuder ”next-generation fan engagement and experience; solutions for connected athletes and communities; and startups in the derivative sports space, including eSports, new and fantasy sports” enligt ett pressmeddelande från OurCrowd.

Jeremy Pressman, riskkapitalist och professionell idrottsman, är partner på ADvantage: “Sports tech is a new and emerging sector with some 4,000 companies worldwide and over $5 billion invested over the past five years. ADvantage will build on the momentum of OurCrowd’s successful investment in Replay Technologies, which was acquired by Intel for $180m. We are excited to continue bringing emerging technologies to our over 25,000 investors and paving the way for the next generation of sports tech startups.”
