Making it easy for athletes to buy, sell, and trade their gear.

View on Angellist
More about SidelineSwap

SidelineSwap makes it easy for athletes to buy, sell and trade sporting goods.

Our mission is to make sports more affordable.

Sports gear is expensive. Last year consumers spent $10b on used sporting goods, but much of that takes place offline at mom & pop stores and local sports league "equipment swaps". That's because in sports like hockey, lacrosse, skiing, or baseball a full set of equipment can cost $500 or more. SidelineSwap lets you find lightly-used gear at up to 80% off retail. Or, snap a picture of that equipment in your house and sell in minutes.

Our users are mostly youth athletes (13-22 years old) who have never sold online before. We activate them through new channels, simplify seller on-boarding, and retain them because it works. The average seller on SidelineSwap earns over $500 a season selling their gear.

Our team is distributed between Boston and New York. Join us. (We're hiring!)

The best connectivity for your device wherever it may be

View on Angellist
More about Wivity

The Telsa Model S has a slower wireless connection than a Chevy Cruze because when Telsa designed the Model S LTE didn’t exist. Telsa now charges customers $500+ to upgrade to LTE.

Wivity offers a Hardware/SaaS edge computing solution that eliminates the complexity of wireless connectivity- “Build Once, Connect Everywhere”. Using our solution, a device designer connects to a hardware wireless modem like a web server- using HTTP calls. The same HTTP calls are made no matter what the network (LTE, 3G, WiFi, SigFox, and even 5G when it is available). Modems can be swapped out at any time to connect to a different network. In this way, devices can have the optimal connectivity wherever they are, at any point in the product lifecycle. Getting back to the Tesla example, if Tesla used Wivity the upgrade cost would be <$100.

With Wivity, building connectivity into an IoT device is just like connecting to a web server. "Twilio for the Internet of Things."
