leAD – “legacy of Adi Dassler” – is a Berlin based Sports entrepreneurship platform focused on funding and nurturing innovative early-stage sports startups. It currently consists of the following elements:

The leAD Sports Accelerator targets seed stage companies with innovative products, services and business models in or applicable to the realm of sports. This next-generation accelerator model with tightly aligned support for entrepreneurs and a linked fund that will capture value from the accelerator’s leading companies creates an unprecedented ecosystem for sports technology value-creation.

The ADvantage fund intends to invest in early stage (Series A) technology companies aimed at reshaping how we play and experience sports. Backed by leAD Sports and OurCrowd, the leading global equity crowdfunding platform, ADvantage will leverage a strong global network to source leading opportunities in the spaces of fan engagement & experience, connected athletes & communities, and derivative sports.

leAD SportsTechX is the consulting and digital product arm of leAD. With a data driven and knowledge based approach leAD SportsTechX helps athletes, sports organisations & corporates to grasp startup driven opportunities in sports. Additionally leAD SportsTechX promotes and connects startups and the international SportsTech scene.

For our founders Klaus, Horst and Stefan Bente, Adi Dassler was not only their grandfather but also a vital role model: his sense of family, his visionary, inventive and entrepreneurial genius as well as his business standards and commitment to excellence shaped them to this date. He inspired them to gather a group of key players in sports and found leAD. Their credo: Bring together not only some of the most sought after experts from the sports industry, but also follow an interdisciplinary approach to make our founders better founders, leaders and team players.
