Innovation begins from within. The venture capital model itself has largely remained unchanged since rising to prominence over the past couple of decades, until now! SportVEST Venture Capital Fund is a unique hybrid model, involved with portfolio companies on a fund focused of traditional equity assets and in leveraging years of business operational management expertise in support of the portfolio companies to shape the global sports ecosystem. This includes high-impact investing in, innovative and groundbreaking sports companies, some of which may be discounted or exclusive offerings.
We are backed by a solid growing group of global positioned Limited Partners (LPs), that include value-add, strategic investors from all parts of the sports, tech, media, and entertainment ecosystems as well as active and retired pro-athletes, angel and accredited investors, family offices, sovereign funds, institutional clients and fund of funds.
We invest globally, in more than 30 sports sub-sectors, from e-sports to fan engagement, data analytics to virtual reality we've got you covered. Find out more about what we invest in.

Where venture capital
meets sport, at the
Our model offers a fresh, innovative and dynamic value proposition. The fund is made up of alternative revenue streams that contribute to an equity LP-based on LP contributions, unlike a traditional VC fund, funnels into the General Partner LLC, where capital deployment occurs, replacing the traditional certificate model. Our multi-faceted approach allows us the flexibility needed to adapt quickly to market conditions, and ever changing innovation, through both traditional longer-term equity positions, but also shorter, medium-term well structured compliant positions, which can increase cash flow within the fund, while mitigating certain risks.
Applying this mix provides the ability to partially subsidize the fund to enable it to live in perpetuity (become open-ended), continuing to increase in value and market share, rather than remain limited to the current standard 5-10 year venture fund shelf life. In addition, this subsidization brings a certain amount of inclusivity and potential enhanced liquidity for LPs much sooner than a traditional VC fund offers.
