Games glory for sportstech startup

9 Aug 2018

An augmented reality platform that brings fans into the match has won the inaugural HYPE UQ SPIN Accelerator Global Pitch competition held during the Commonwealth Games.

Sydney-based ARIVAL technology beat out 10 other sportstech startups to take out the $25,000 grand prize with its technology that delivers players and team statistics to fans during live play by simply pointing a mobile phone at the court or television.

ARIVAL founder Matt Coleman said the win was amazing for the team and had given them validation of their product innovation and development.

“We’re excited about the opportunity to now present our company at the FIFA World Cup in Russia, which opens us up to one of the largest sports communities in the world,” Mr Coleman said.

“The HYPE UQ SPIN Accelerator program has certainly been a very valuable, worthwhile opportunity and I would highly recommend it to any startups or early stage companies that are serious about their growth."
