Sports interests have exploded worldwide. There are over 100 million athletes, fans, coaches and sports parents in the US alone (almost 2B worldwide) and there is no social network dedicated for sports. Current offerings such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and YouTube aren't built for sports. The SportsForce goal is to become the largest social network and online community for sports (athletes, fans, coaches, parents and teams). The revenue model includes premium memberships, online advertising and a social commerce program. Founded by Andrew Beinbrink a 3x Internet entrepreneur, SportsForce has generated over $100K in revenues in the last 12 months via a premium membership program for student-athletes. The Company's subscriber list has increased from 15,000 to over 30,000, and the number of athlete profiles has increased over 50% in the last three months.

At Fanatic Fans management believes in the excitement generated around live events. As a Smartphone application our mission is to harness this excitement and transform it into Fan communities engaged with their favorite teams, bands and colleges in a new interactive way. Fans can access information about upcoming events, buy tickets, earn rewards, and share their experience using a variety of media before, during and after the event. Fanatic Fans earn points for attending events and using features within the application, and can redeem those points for merchandise, services, food and drinks while at the event or with participating vendors around the venue. By matching the established behavior of incentive programs with the niche of live events, Fanatic Fans is the first mobile application bridging the gap between Fanatic Fans and organizations that wish to target those Fans. Fanatic Fans is available now for download on both Android and iPhone mobile devices.
