Sports Technology Trends: In December 2023, we compiled a report on Technology Trends in 2024. Our team is publishing Mergers, Acquisitions, and Funding Reports every month in our newsletter called ScoreCard. We got a contribution from some of the industry veterans in this report. A major highlight is comments from Grant Thornton, Partner and Director.

Athlete KYC, Compliance, and APIs: Our approach to Generative AI (GenAI) stands out as it doesn't require extensive training datasets. Our team worked with USA Rugby to improve their compliance by integrating KYC APIs.

For more insights, please review our informative deck.


Working with Big Leagues: We finally got our first breakthrough working with an NFL team. We are still finalizing a product roadmap with them. Additionally, our engagement with USA Youth and High School Rugby gave us tremendous experience working with a large organization. Our solution will save approx. 40 hours per month of team management time and help them stay compliant with Age Verification.

I always look forward to your suggestions, questions & feedback. You can schedule a chat with me here:

We put a lot of thought into what goes in this email & make it relevant.
