The jury of athletes
In addition to the expertise of the investment team, the opinions of active and former top athletes on the start-up idea are also sought. While the investment team rather examines the team structure and the business idea, the expert jury provides deeper insights into whether the business model can be interesting and helpful for the individual athlete. Their verdict should give the overall assessment a greater practical relevance.
The expert jury
We are pleased that additional proven start-up, marketing and financial experts support the jury members with their experience and know-how.
