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).
