SportsMe turns conversations into interactive, gamified content—think TikTok meets ESPN’s Around the Horn.

The problem we're solving:

Fans want deeper experiences with each other and the content and creators they love. Creators wants easy/safe ways to connect with and monetize their audiences. Everyone, including brands, is looking for authentic content.

Our solution:

Our remote publishing tool and social platform connects fans, athletes, and influencers via short, user-uploaded videos that are threaded together and play as either public, interactive shows, or intimate conversations. Our tech makes it safe and easy for creators to collaborate with each other to tell stories, build audiences, and natively monetize. Core interactions and monetization features were built using feedback from top pro athletes, celebrities, social media stars, and of course, fans.

Our differentiator:

Product: Our publishing tools allow multiple parties to collaborate in near real-time to create interactive shows and other direct-to-consumer content. We focus on asynchronous video because a) content is trending toward real/authentic (TikTok) b) it’s how modern groups engage (group messaging, not daily zoom calls with friends) and 3) it’s safer for participants, especially high-profile users.
Our DNA: We created our product with celebs, young social stars, and media talent. They know social and how to build audiences, and they know which tools (ours) make their lives better.

Biggest achievement:

Our awesome core team, advisors, and investors. We’ve recruited amazing people with world-class expertise in key functional areas, phenomenal networks and access, and who love the product!
