Kevin Harrington joins the SportyCo team
Kevin, an original “shark” on the hit TV show Shark Tank and the pioneer of the ‘As Seen on TV’ brand, joins SportyCo as business advisor and co-owner.
Kevin Harrington, the creator of the infomercial, co-founding board member of the Entrepreneur’s Organization and one of the original “sharks” on the TV show Shark Tank has joined the SportyCo team as business advisor. His work behind-the-scenes of business ventures has produced well over $5 billion in global sales, and he will help the SportyCo team in the process of building the world’s premiere sports investment ecosystem. He will join the team as a full time consultant, and will also enter SportyFi Ltd, the company behind the SportyCo platform, as a co-owner.
“I believe in empowering entrepreneurs to succeed, to fulfil their vision in building better products, platforms and services for consumers. SportyCo is an idea with immense potential, leveraging the power of the blockchain with the passion of sports, and I am proud to be a part of this story.”
Kevin sensed a passion for business from an early age, starting his first business at age 15 and building his first million-dollar enterprise by his first year in college. Through his entrepreneurial experiences, he realized his talent for turning underutilized assets into growth opportunities, which lead to the launch what later came to be called the infomercial, making phrases like “As seen on TV” and “Wait, there’s more!” part of the cultural landscape.
He was also an original “shark” on the hit TV show Shark Tank , where he continued to live out his passion—empowering entrepreneurs to greatness. Kevin believes that there’s a little bit of creative entrepreneur inside every person and that every entrepreneur deserves the opportunity to see his or her dream become reality.
SportyCo at the Crypto Business Forum at Nasdaq
SportyCo will be one of the select few companies present at the exclusive networking event in New York.
On March 26, 2018, Marko and Simon will introduce SportyCo to an exclusive audience of investors at the Nasdaq Stock Market, the second largest stock exchange in the world, known for its focus on tech companies. The Crypto Business Forum at Nasdaq event is attended by 100+ accredited investors, and we will present our vision and plans to some of the top names in the US investor community.
We will have the opportunity to mingle with the shakers and movers in the financial industry, and gather together with other blockchain visionaries and influencers to discover what lies ahead in the future of blockchain.
As we have already announced, SportyCo will be one of the select few companies present at the exclusive networking event Crypto Business Forum at Nasdaq in New York. The Crypto Business Forum is an event, that gathers blockchain visionaries, influencers, and investors in one place for an exchange of ideas.
Only 20 companies are participating at the event. Each project present will be first given 10 minutes of time to present their idea and product to all other participating companies, looking for synergies and potential partnerships, and exchanging ideas and suggestions on how to leverage the power of the blockchain even more. Marko, our CEO, will participate in this exclusive round table and we believe some of the things he has to say will be very appreciated amongst the members of other participating projects – especially as SportyCo is one of the few crowdsourced blockchain projects that is already live with a beta version of their product.
Participating at the Crypto Business Forum at Nasdaq also comes with an extensive media package. The conference organizers and their ambassadors will hold 1-hour strategy sessions with each participant, and also present all teams with a content pack, including a professional video for the project, presenting the project on the big screen on Nasdaq tower and supporting the media exposure for all participants.
Marko and Simon will also hold a 1-hour interview with the Business Innovators Radio Network, which will also cover SportyCo in their magazine and as syndicated content in over 60 US media outlets. We will also have several TV appearances in the US market in Q2, 2018.
The event is a serious affair, but who says you can’t mix business with pleasure. On March 25, the organizers are holding a private event for participants only with a not yet disclosed VIP speaker, while in the evening of the 26th Marko and Simon will have the opportunity to present SportyCo in 1-on-1s to over 100 accredited investors, and they’ll also have a couple of minutes to impress the whole room presenting SportyCo to the gathered crowd in an elevator pitch. As we will have the opportunity to share additional info with these investors and with their wider network, we are currently working hard on preparing all necessary materials to be shared with them.
All in all, we believe this is a tremendous opportunity to present SportyCo to a really exclusive audience of investors and crypto influencers. And with Kevin Harrington on board, the US investor and business community will soon know all about SportyCo and the change we are trying to achieve in sports financing.
