How 4 Fitness Startups Pivoted in Response to the Covid-19 Pandemic

As 2020 comes to a close, New Year’s resolutions are just over the horizon. With all of the “get a killer beach body” and “lose 5 pounds” resolutions, it’s no surprise that January and February are the two busiest months for gyms and studios. Yet, this year workout options look very different. As the pandemic reaches month 9 in the United States, many industries have been hit hard, but few have been impacted as much as fitness. Gyms and studios were closed for months by state orders and those that returned have done so with limited hours and drastically reduced capacity. In these difficult times, fitness startups and boutiques have adapted their offerings to serve their members and fit in a COVID world.

A lot of exciting products were featured at Developer Week this year, but the one that really caught my eye was CodeStream – the first messaging platform built exclusively for developers.

The Booming World of Sports Tech

Historically, the term “Sports Tech” often received the stigma of being niche within the venture community. Despite professional sports being a multi-billion dollar industry, many investors expressed concern over limited market size. There are only ~120 teams across NFL, NBA, MLB, and NHL, and budgets for non-performance related initiatives (i.e. player salaries) are notoriously frugal. Furthermore, the collegiate market is highly fragmented and the sports industry as a whole is ripe with gatekeepers.

“Mobile-first” is the principle of creating web pages focused primarily on the mobile device experience. It is linked to “Responsive Web Design”, a method that enables websites to adjust to the screens of different devices automatically.

Venture 101: The Dating Game

The process of raising venture money is a lot like dating. Games are often played – encouraging encounters can end in ghosting, they might like your friend (competitor) better, and you have to finely walk that “I’m available” but also “hard to get” vibe. All you can do though is stay true to yourself (and vision), and coining a phrase from the great Joel Embiid, just trust the process. Below we have outlined some of our dating (put a line through dating?) fundraising tips.
