Professional sport today has a high entry barrier – both for athletes as well as for small investors. Especially up-and-coming athletes at the outset of their professional careers face a lot of issues when it comes to funding their training and participation in events across the globe. The same goes for many sports clubs and other sports organizations which face severe financial and liquidity issues.
SportyCo is about to change this.
SportyCo will remove these barriers and consequently change financing in the sports industry by deploying a blockchain-based financing platform, serving athletes, clubs and other sports organizations, in raising the funds required to achieve athletic success.
SportyCo will enable a wider community to invest in sport, an industry worth USD 620 billion with constant growth. By disrupting the existing model for financing participants in sport, SportyCo will allow the sports community to raise funds globally and will open a new chapter in the sports industry.

The rise of ‘the ICO’ in 2017 has been astonishing to watch. ICOs have followed the innovator’s dilemma disruption path in much faster timeframes than technology has. The VC and Angel investor market, which maintains a chokehold on development projects, has now been uprooted by a decentralized, democratic model of global crowdfunding, that in some cases, is producing returns in the 1,000% range.
With the diversity of each leader’s background, including Key Sponsors Uulala, a blockchain company to empower the unbanked, and U.S. Olympic Medalist Apolo Ohno’s organization HybridBlock , the group will collectively merge their knowledge. Industries in attendance include social impact, marketing and media, finance, data security, blockchain development, agriculture, cryptocurrency trading, personal development, fitness, cannabis, and sports financing. Each has navigated the ever-changing business landscape in the lightning speed crypto market and looks to further the impact blockchain technology can have on their respective industries.
Ohno, a founder of the new cryptocurrency exchange HybridBlock, will take an active role in examining the ecosystem for global exchange. Another notable Key Sponsor Oscar Garcia of the financial technology company Uulala has a focused social impact outlook to share what it looks like to bring millions of unbanked users into the formal economy. Joshua Ashley Klayman Kuzar is providing key insights into the global legal landscape around cryptocurrencies.
Not only did the event bring introspective from emerging platforms, but it also focused on disruption to legacy industries.
