FWB keeps spreading its mission to increase physical activity and participation in sports. During May it celebrates an amazing month of worldwide successes
Munich, May 2019 – This month marked another huge step forward for our Startup FUN WITH BALLS on its mission to increase physical activity.
We started with our multiBALL entering the UK market for the first time together with our distribution partner FiredUp Technologies (read the full story on multiBALL Blog). It continued in Amsterdam at TNW The Next Web Conference which is all all about advancing tech developments. In Madrid we pitched our vision of the future of sports to professionals and pro-football players at the More Than Players event in partnership with the Microsoft Global Sport Innovation Center.
In Paris we showcased our multiBALL system at VivaTech, the world’s largest rendezvous for startups and leaders to celebrate innovation. Entertaining an impressively large crowd, we showed the power of technology mixed with gaming to everyone while having loads of fun! The icing on the cake of a successful event was FUN WITH BALLS making second place at Global Entrepreneurship Network Viva Technology Edition of the EWC Entrepreneurship World Cup, in an amazing contest with fierce competition with 67.000 (!!!) entrepreneurs competing to push and accelerate #entrepreneurship worldwide.
By the end of the month we celebrated another success, having been crowed as winner of the #StartupBattle by ASICS TenKan-Ten Growth Catalyst award and chosen by the public as winner of the International Startup Battle Final at #TheSpot2019, the event in Lausanne celebrating innovation in sport with hundreds of visionaries, tech gurus and investors gathering together in the SwissTech Convention Center to take sports to the next level. It was awesome to be among 40 Startups pitching and a total of 150 applicants challenging their golden place in the SportsTech Olympus, we can only send a huge Thank You to the public for their vote and to everyone who keeps supporting our journey!
For us all these diverse experiences are the perfect occasion to sharing and brainstorming new ideas, and being awarded for our daily commitment to pursue our mission keeps us going at full throttle, constantly improving ourselves and our products. Our interactive experiences (multiBALL and interactiveSQUASH) are a unique way to motivate everyone, in particular the youngsters, to get more active, to increase physical activity and to make sports their lifestyle in the digital age.
Markos Kern, founder of FWB, discusses his pride in these latest outstanding results: “It is so great getting all this positive feedback for what we have achieved and our mission. We are growing fast and it feels good for the whole team that we are on the right path to provide a meaningful solution to the sports eco system.”
We keep moving fast so keep following us!
