Venture Lab’s People Sports secures $450,000 in financing and achieves finalist position in EEC

Author: Matan Ganani. Co-founder of People Sports

People Sports [1]People Sports has had a very exciting couple of months!   In the end of August, we finalized our seed financing round, managing to secure a total of $450,000 in financing, mostly from US based angel investors.

Ever since, we have been working non-stop, along with Mobivery – our technology partner, on development of the platform.   In parallel, we’ve been working on our company branding and pre-launch strategy along with Katapult Sports, a company which specializes in sports marketing.

We have just started working on establishing the B2B relations with football clubs, in order to have 1-2 clubs lined up for a pilot program once the platform is fully developed and tested.  We aim to begin activity less than 3 months.

Additionally, People Sports has been nominated for a finalist position in the upcoming EEC (European E-Commerce Summit) startup competition.   We have been selected as 1 of 25 startups, out of which, 10 startups will be chosen by a jury panel and by an open online vote, to pitch at the conference.   We would appreciate your support by voting for us at the following link:
