SportsConnectU

Startup Location: Atlanta, GA

SportsConnectU is a family venture developed to easily connect student-athletes to college coaches. Our family consists of former athletes, sports parents, and coaches. We understand firsthand the barriers to gaining college exposure and navigating the competitive sports and college recruiting space, so we created a solution that allows any student-athlete to gain college exposure no matter their circumstance.

Currently, our app is available on the Apple and Google Play app stores. It is free to download and add your profile for college coaches to view. To send connection requests and send highlight and game film directly to college coaches it's only $1.99/month, enabling student-athletes to gain exposure right from their mobile phone.

We started this project without any financial backing, and have paid to develop this tool out of our own pockets. The $1.99 cost to connect and send video to college coaches is to help pay for basic business costs, but we'd like to offer it for FREE and serve millions of student-athletes across the nation.

To continue on this journey and provide this recruiting tool to every student-athlete for free, we are launching a crowdfunding campaign to raise $100,000.

We are looking for social media ambassadors to help us spread the word!

Volunteering as a social media ambassador for SportsConnectU provides an opportunity for enthusiastic and engaged individuals to play a significant role in supporting athletes across the nation through the success of our upcoming crowdfunding campaign.

The social media ambassador will share content, facilitate conversations and promote awareness to increase donations during the campaign.

This is a short project (1-2 months) that is great for someone looking to add sports and/or technology marketing experience to their resume OR an individual that would like to spend approximately 1 hour per week to support a small startup revolutionizing college sports recruiting.
