Hey Sports Tech Fans,
What an incredible 13 weeks it was for my company LiveDuel.com in the Launchpool Techstars Web3 accelerator program in Dublin.
The value of the network and the high quality of the cohort pushed both me and my company to new personal bests.
Last Thursday was our demo day and everyone absolutely killed it!
Huge thanks to the the Techstars team of Pete, Hugh and Hannah as well as the associate team of Paula, Leslie and Saar. Each and everyone of them went to bat for me and my company and the other 8 companies in the cohort as well.
The network of mentors was extensive and far reaching. They each gave up their own time to help out companies like mine and for that I am very grateful.
We made for life long friends and colleagues throughout the process and I am very excited about the future of LiveDuel.
You can see my pitch below and if you have any questions you can reply to this email.
Hot on the heels of the Techstars Web3 demo day is the Techstars Sports Tech Indy demo day which is tomorrow, hence this newsletter going out a day early.
You can sign up at the link below.
Normal service will resume from next week!
Have a great sporting weekend,
Will
