Who We Are
The Motion Differentiator
We are a focused early-stage sports and active lifestyle investor. Following our initial investment, we continue to support our portfolio companies with future funding rounds. Our team has deep expertise in the sports industry, as well as valuable strategic relationships that drive proprietary deal flow. We seek to build long-term supportive, collaborative and trusting relationships with the entrepreneurs in which we invest. The extensive investment and management experience of our partner group gives us a shared perspective and enables us to provide valuable mentoring in areas such as management, hiring, strategy development, go-to-market plans, and exit strategies.
The Motion Advisory Board
Motion’s Advisory Board is made up of talented individuals such as Hall of Fame athletes, experienced sports executives, and founders who have started some of the most successful and relevant companies in their sectors. We pair our Advisory Board members with each of our portfolio companies to ensure they realize rapid traction and avoid the pitfalls that entrepreneurs often make. The Motion Advisory Board also helps us to identify investments that others might not have the opportunity to recognize and properly evaluate.
