Traditional websites spread their content over many web pages, which cause loading delays when linking from page to page. Minisites eliminate this delay by condensing all content on to one seamless scrolling web page. This saves time for users, especially on mobile devices, which are now the dominant platform for viewing websites.
Minisites are great for small to medium sized businesses or serving a specific purpose, such as promoting a product, service or event, driving downloads, generating sign ups or taking orders. If you have a large database of content that must be accessible, a traditional website may be more appropriate than a Minisite. However, a Minisite could still be used to complement or even promote your full website or part of your website.
In today's society, a professional web presence for your business or organization is a must. People looking for information usually go to the internet first. If you don't have a good website, or no website at all, they tend to look for someone else who does.
We require your logo and any content (text, images, video, etc.) that you would like displayed on your Minisite. Aside from that, we require your input and approvals during the design and development process.
Everything can be done through email, telephone or Skype but we will be happy to meet with you if you wish, and you're located in or near St. John's, Newfoundland, Canada.
Copy writing is not included but we certainly can if needed, for an additional charge. However, we encourage you to write your own content because nobody knows your business or organization better than you do. Don't worry, we ask you key questions to help get the right information from you.
Yes, but technically that would be a website instead of a Minisite. Therefore, additional costs will apply for the extra pages. An alternative to adding other pages to a Minisite is to add the extra content inside a modal window.
Yes. Minisites are responsive, meaning it "responds" to fit the screen size of the device it's being viewed on by automatically reconfiguring it's layout to the optimum viewing experience whether it's a phone, tablet or desktop computer.
If everything goes according to schedule, and you provide timely input when required, your Minisite will be delivered within 30 days.
Although we can't make any guarantee due to factors outside our control, everything will be done to optimize your website so that it is properly read by search engines, giving it the best chance of ranking high.
Yes. Minisites are powered by WordPress, the most popular Content Management System (CMS) in the world. WordPress is very user friendly but a user guide will be supplied to help you become familiar with it.
Yes. Updates can be done at an hourly rate. Also, maintenance contracts are available for $75 per month, which includes an hour of updates per month.
Minisites carry a limited 30 day warranty after launch to work out any bugs or issues you may run into. However, most problems occur from circumstances outside our control and therefore can't offer an extended warranty. In the unlikely event that you have an issues after the first 30 days, we will be happy to help you at an hourly rate.
Yes. By condensing your content down to one concise page and omitting unnecessary pages, we are able to pass savings on to you from the reduced development time.
50% is due up front and 50% is due upon launch of your Minisite.
Prices are for design and development but does not include your domain name or hosting. If you don't already have a domain name or hosting, we will be happy to help you register both at no additional charge. We offer web hosting for $15 per month and maintenance for $75 per month.


In 1903, the Wright brothers managed to fly a plane a distance of 39 yards, and today planes fly 12,000 km at an altitude of 30,000 feet. We believe that the field of sports is expected to change just as significantly in the next 5 to 10 years. Ranging from the experience of buying a ticket to the fans’ experience in the stadium and at home - everything will be different, both on and off the field. When we started the HYPE Foundation, we wanted to build more than a sports innovation platform. We saw ourselves doing something greater than building a community that engages startups and corporations. We believe that sports and innovation are the best ways to create a bigger impact in the world that appears to be more divided and alienated than ever.


So far, HYPE has engaged more than 8,000 startups in various sectors such as fan engagement Applications, Health and Bioinformatics, Retail and ticketing, augmented realities, Wearables and sensors, Artificial intelligence, real-time decision making and many others. The HYPE Foundation is owned by MG Equity partners' investment fund since 2003 and has partner programs with Microsoft, Google, Team SKY (Sky Sports), in addition to running Accelerator programmers and Hackathons around the world with Over 26,000 Members (Startups, Sports brands, teams, Investors, leagues etc).

Participating in the TOP 50 is subject to startups that have been voted in by HYPE Foundation’s Jury.
