MAKEACHAMP was created in 2012 to specifically provide assistance to athletes so that they could raise funds to cover the costs of their athletic goals. Since then, we have significantly broadened our mission to include teams and organizations. Currently we are excited to announce that MAKEACHAMP has expanded our mission one major step further. We always want to empower people around the world to achieve any sport-related goal. We now want to include the development of sports technology.
Sport Technology has a wide ranging appeal across a global audience. It transcends gender and makes any sport more accessible. New technologies in sport are an ever growing occurrence especially for startups involved in crowdfunding. General Crowdfunding companies such as Ulule and Indiegogo have a growing range of sports technologies which demonstrates there is a growing market for it. Campaigns are being launched due to the fact that there is a demand by a portion of sport amateurs or athletes. New ideas are engulfing the market and crowdfunding is embracing these ideas and changes head on.
Recently MAKEACHAMP has plunged into Sports Tech on a new project.The Hiboux de Montréal, a visually impaired hockey team, created a team campaign to raise funds for the development of a sound-emitting hockey puck.Visually impaired hockey teams have been playing with painted tin cans until now, and the Hiboux, in partnership with UQAM (Université de Québec à Montréal), have taken it upon themselves to bring this game into the 21st century. With a prototype already developed they have raised 107% of their goal. It is no surprise to us that our first sports technology campaign is a success. MAKEACHAMP is the ideal candidate for this project and for all Sports Technologies that require crowdfunding. Our personalized experience in the world of sports crowdfunding makes the perfect recipe for success.
The future for sports tech is a very bright one that will get brighter. The tech industry alone is ever evolving and growing so undoubtedly the sports aspect of tech is going to expand. The Sports Tech world is bridging the gap between reality and idealism every day. Athletes and sports amateurs are the ultimate beneficiaries of this gap bridging. Sports will change for the better in the future because of the rise of sports technology. Rules and regulations will also probably change. Finally, crowdfunding’s involvement in Sports Tech will grow and change as well. We can all watch in excitement as these new ideas are brought into the limelight of reality and MAKEACHAMP puts itself in the front ranks of these changes.
