Sports are theultimateunifier,andoneofthemostintriguingmarketsinventureinvesting. Fora
sports fan, a lot of free time is defined by the teams and athletes they follow, which influences
how they spend their disposable income. Sports is a global industry, to put this in context, the

audience of 1 billion people , or

While there are a large group of professional investors in traditional sports (leagues, teams,
advertising, media etc.), the venture ecosystem in the sports technology sector is still
developing. There is momentum in VC investing in the space, with over $1 billion invested in
sports technology startups in 2014, according to a TechCrunch Tableau study.2 For a list of
some prominent investors see Exhibit 1

Sports Technology is a broad sector with many companies serving different parts of the sports
value chain. In this section, we introduce a taxonomy of 12 different categories of companies
that collectively constitute Sports Tech. We have classified 400 private companies into these
categories, primarily looking at those in the early stages. Appendix A lists all the companies
along with their classification. Our goal with this categorization is to be as MECE (mutually
exclusive, collectively exhaustive) as possible. However, we do realize that some companies
span multiple categories. In such cases, we have done the classification based on the


We have defined most categories by the primary application of the technology (for instance
Coaching and Training, Media etc.). However we make an exception in cases such as
Wearables, Drones and VR/AR since these are upcoming technologies with a broad array of
applications. Finally, we have compiled the most promising companies in each of the 12
categoriesbelowintoasectormap(see Exhibit2

Coaching and Training fulfills one of the most fundamental needs in sport, i.e. to improve
individual and team performance so as to obtain better outcomes than the competition. This
category covers companies that connect athletes & coaches, manage athletic goals, and offer
unique insights into training & development. For instance video analysis tools such as
Mobicoach that supplement a coach's ability to provide instant feedback are covered here.
Tools aimed at athlete recruitment are also covered here as their primary purpose isdiscovery

Drones are rapidly being adopted for sports, whethertoassistinfilmingofsportseventsorasa

Fantasy Sports involves players putting together virtual teams of real players of a professional
sport. The realgame statistics of individual players are then compared to determine whose
fantasy team performed the best. Players can compete in public or private leagues using a

Having begun as a competition among friends, today fantasy sports have evolved into a
multibillion dollar business. Some 56 million people play fantasy sports in North America.
Wealthier fans are more likely to play: 16% of people with incomes of $50,000 or more play
fantasy sports, while only 10% of people who earn less than $50,000 participate.Atotalof$18

Companies in this space include platforms for fantasy sports players to build andmanagetheir

VR can be divided into subcategories such as VR headsets ( Oculus Rift

), 3D contentcreation
(JauntVR) and stitching ( VideoStitch) etc. Further, within VR headsets there are 3 distinctions:

Wearables & Smart Devices is one of the most innovative and evolving areas in sports
technology with a broad set of applications. This segment include all wearables fitness
trackers, smart watches and other devices worn on the body smart fabrics with sensors

This includes but is not limited to technologies for performance optimization (e.g. Kenzen) ,
faster recovery (eg. ShockBox
), injury prevention (e.g. Fitbit)
), activity tracking (eg. ,
training insights using wearables (eg., Zepp) , and sensors that capture and improve
gameplay(eg. Scoutee,PlaySight ).

Wearables and smart devices arebeingusedbyathletesandcoaches toimproveperformance,

and teams that are early adopters are gaining a competitive advantage. Even corporate
wellness programs are using these devices as a means to promote exercise and improve
overall health. The sports and fitness wearables market is projected to hit$14.9billionby2021

Investing in the sports technology space comes with its own unique set of challenges. Our

a) Few Exits : While there has been a lot of investmentinthespace,therehavebeenfew

exits. The most notable exit in recent years was the sale of BleacherReport to
TimeWarner in 2012 for $200 million.32 Further, the exit environment is category
dependent. For eg. companies innovating in VR/AR applications for sports could scale

b) Market Sizing & Monetization: The revenue potential for some of the categories is
unclear and can be a challenge for investors. Question remains if companiesshouldbe

c) Total Addressable Market (TAM): The TAM can often be small for some sports tech
companies. For eg. if companies target athletes and teams, they are limited by the
number of teams in the sport(s). A smart investor should look for companies that can
scale across industries, where sports can serve as a captive market to test and grow

d) Venture Scale: A number of companies in sports technology can be great cash flow
generating, profitable businesses. The challenge can be scaling them to become billion

dollar companies which provide venture like returns. This however, is changing

e) Positioning : Sporting organizations (teams & leagues) can be entrenchedintheirways

of thinking and conducting business, having been fueled by their success. Some of
these could be seen as antiquated from the viewpoint of a successful venture investor
and/or technology entrepreneur. This coupled with the long sales cycles in B2B

f) Access: The sports world is incredibly network driven and access to the right

The Sports technology ecosystem is exciting and growing at a rapid pace, with momentum in
VC activity. As frontier technology (VR/AR, Drones) improves and gainsmainstreamadoption,
we expect it to play an even larger role in redefining how sports are played, broadcasted and
experienced by fans. The very nature of what constitutes sports is changing as well, with
professional competition in video gaming in the form of eSports. Wearables and smart
connected devices are transforming every facet of thesportsindustry,forinstancebeaconsare

Some categories are yet to beinvented.Forinstance,couldsportsseetheeffectiveadoptionof
