Sportclubby surpasses its goal of € 650,000 and reaches 104% overfunding, thanks to the participation of over 90 investors.
An important milestone for the company, which in just over a year has raised over €1.4 million from venture capital funds, private investors and tech-sports professionals. These include the founders of Deltatre, one of the leading companies in the sports tech sector , the Milan-based fund Oltre Venture and WyLab, the first Italian sports incubator, which was created with Wyscout, the first professional football platform at global level, and which is the protagonist of one of the most important exits in the sports tech world.
"Wylab has been supporting for years startups active in the sports sector with a very high technological connotation and international development horizon. One example above all is Wyscout, of which we were the first backers, and which was recently acquired by Hudl in the biggest exit in the sector," comments Antonio Gozzi, co-founder of Wylab, and continues, "Supporting Sportclubby is part of an investment strategy we're pursuing on some of the best startups in our portfolio, to support the scaleup phase. A choice that confirms our commitment to the Sportech sector, which is growing and expanding rapidly."
WyLab and Oltre Venture also participated in this second round of investment, confirming that they strongly believe in the innovative potential of the solution developed by Sportclubby, as Lorenzo Allievi, co-founder and CEO of Oltre Venture, says: "Sportclubby struck us with the intuition of facilitating access to sports facilities, proposing users a complete multi-discipline offer. Theexpertise of the founders, the growth potential of this market and the results achieved a year after our first investment, in terms of affiliated sports facilities, registered users and bookings made, convinced us to participate in this new capital increase."
The company will use the funds raised to extend the functionality of the platform, further expand the community of sportsmen and clubs and develop new machine learning and data science projects with which it aims to become a true virtual consultant for sportsmen.
