Investment Optimization

Have a venture arm or want to invest in tech companies that could benefit you and others in sport? We are working with top companies and investors and can allocate shares for organizations as well.

Sports Tech is evolving, and our clients need a place to test and prove their worth. 

Our goal from the outset was to provide services to investors and startups who are seeking involvement in the sports and sports technology space. By the nature of that, we also have become well known for the ability to provide access to technology that is at the bleeding edge and need true tests of their solutions. There is a mutually beneficial relationship when we can provide a professional atmosphere to test with a partner who will also benefit from the technology. Some of these arrangements may be at a significant discount or no cost at all.

We often work with clients and companies who are raising capital from a variety of investor types. We lean toward strategic partners, who will not only provide capital, but also opportunity. For this reason, many sports organizations are an ideal investor and we can also move on to find Lead Investors (VC, PE & Institutional), Family Offices, High Net Worth Individuals and Angel Investors to make sure the investor group is strong and supported. We feel that a strong, strategic investor provides more value than capital could ever do on it’s own. All of our clients have been properly vetted and have a high potential for success.

Investors of all kinds can join our client opportunities, but more importantly we want to assist our partners in making sure that the companies that they invest in or bring on as vendors are right for them. Our core competency is sports and sports technology, and take pride in knowing what is happening in the industry.

The Athletic Venture Advisors team helped us build out some important partners for our long term business development. Their introductions to major players in the US Venture Capital space lead us to rethink our raise and were able to land a Series A investment rather than take a bridge round. We look forward to continuing to work with Marc and his team as we grow.

Startup & Tech Advisory.

With access and a network focused in sports, we are able to provide cost effective value to a sports organization who is in need of a technology solution, efficiency review or any other focused advancement. This could be the addition of a client of ours, or one that was presented or discovered by your team. With industry awareness at an all-time high, it is important that the opportunities are being vetted, analyzed and de-risked as much as possible. Athletic Venture Advisors can be a trusted “on the ground” advisor who has the best interests of the organization and the client  – we likely also have  opportunities that can immediately add value to your team or league through our own clients, partners, network and outreach efforts. 
We have no doubt that amazing opportunities are being brought to on a regular basis. Where Athletic Venture Advisors can help is in the review process and the experience to know what to look in the specifics of the opportunity. Our core competency is in the analysis of startups and SME’s in the sports and sports technology space and will make sure that your investments in technology advancement align with the goals of the organization.
Whether it is reviewing opportunities that have come to you or looking for unique, never before seen opportunities – we are here for you.

We seek and review all types of clients from idea stage to enterprise. 

WHY ADVISORS?

The ever-changing environment of business has shown that remote and third party consultants can provide great value to  businesses while keeping costs down. Is there a hole that needs to be filled by an expert that is out of your payroll budget? Only needed for a short time? Consultants and Advisors are your best asset.

Advisors and mentors can provide much needed guidance and assistance in your journey. They may be able to open doors that were not available to you, share advice on past successes or failures and ultimately help direct you on your journey. 

Disclaimer:

We are not Financial Managers or an investment fund. Nor would we ever intend to do so for any of our clients, partners, or representatives. What we consider ourselves experts in, is the investment and strategic partnership side of sports and sports technology. We are actively working within the Pre-Seed to Series B range for clients and investors of all kinds.

Athletic Venture Advisors can assist in the review, analysis and even help locate a lead, additional investors or athletes. This can be for your own ventures, projects under review, or we can provide opportunities from our own network and clients.
This can be offered as a service through your firm for your potential portfolio companies and outsourced to Athletic Venture Advisors or as a strategic partnership.

We review all types of investments as well as equity exchange (NIL).
