Hey Sports Tech Fans,
What an insanely busy week for me.
As you may already know my company LiveDuel.com is participating in the Techstars x Launchpool Web 3 accelerator program out of Dublin.
We had 30 mentor meetings this week, which are essentially 20 minute speed dating sessions where we pitch and learn more about each other to see if there is something to work on longer term.
The days are intense but oh so rewarding and the sheer volume of pitches I am doing is helping me craft my pitch as I have 30 opportunities to refine my pitch and try new things.
So far in April we have had 70 such meetings with 20 more next week.
The proof is in the pudding as I was pitching an investor that I met last week at ETH Amsterdam, and he stopped me mid flow to complement me on my articulation of a complicated defi crypto process as I had practiced it so much.
On the program there is another sports startup, BigFan.io
They are help sports rights holders to reimagine their sports collectibles through NFT’s and the Metaverse.
Pete the MD of the Techstars program interviewed them for his podcast Money Never Sleeps which is well worth a listen.
