Austrian sports facility booking platform Eversport has raised $1 million in seed funding, led by Point Nine Capital and RTAVentures, along with Techstars and a number of angel investors.
Eversport, not to be confused with the US-based sports streaming service, was founded in 2013 and provides a platform for athletes to search for and book sports facilities in their area like football pitches, tennis courts, and bowling alleys. It currently has more than 30,000 venues listed on its site, according to the startup.
CEO and co-founder Hanno Lippitsch, a former athlete himself, says the seed capital will be used to develop Eversports’ mobile app and expand into new markets, with the Netherlands next on the agenda as well as building sales teams in Germany.
Eversport marks Point Nine Capital’s latest investment in booking and marketplace services, which also includes StarOfService and DocPlanner.
“We firmly believe that Eversport has the potential to become an international player within a very short time in the field of booking sports facilities and sports courses online,” says Pawel Chudzinski, co-founder and managing partner at Point Nine Capital.
