LIKE A PLAYER CHALLENGE CONTEST

The Challenge

The Like a Player Challenge, developed by Arena Hub and Sebra, is focused on resolving pain points in the sports and entertainment industry, with the aim of strengthening the segment and generating new business.

The Challenge will make training and mentorships available to qualified entrepreneurs, in accordance with their stage and needs in order to improve their performance in the event. Each startup will be accompanied by a mentor specialized in Startups who will guide the startup on their business model, how to validate their idea, how to decrease the uncertainty of the business and improve market performance. There will be workshops throughout the entire period of the program and the entrepreneurs will receive high-quality content to get hands-on practice with the methodologies that are currently used by the biggest startups in the world.

For this program there will be preference given to innovative startups with a high potential for growth, models that think about global scaling and that use technology solutions as the centerpoint of their business model.

 

We expect applications from startups made up of at least two partners, with one of them being 100% dedicated to the business. However, not meeting these criteria is not cause for exclusion.

All of the startups will be evaluated on the following factors:

  • Market potential of the startup

  • Level of innovation in the business model

  • Quality of the team

 
The Like a Player Challenge is part of an initiative by Arena Hub and Sebrae Nacional and it is carried out by Arena Hub. The program also relies on strategic partnerships from various players in the national and local market seeking to develop an ecosystem that fosters the startups. 

Target Audience

This program is targeted predominately at entrepreneurs who have a startup in the operation and scaling phase.

  • Operation: Startups that have a ready solution but are still beginning initial tests, and are entering into contact with their first clients or are starting to generate revenue. 

  • Scaling: Startups that already have a Market Fit Product and are in the growth phase.

 

Entrepreneurs from anywhere in Brazil can register if they are available to participate digitally for the entire process that will last around 02 weeks, between September and October 2020.

 

Main benefits

In addition to understanding the dynamics and methodology of launching innovative products, knowledge about the universe of startups, and experience sharing with local professionals and specialized mentors from around the country, qualified finalists will receive:

 

  • Equity Free: we will not ask for any percentage of your company;

  • Individual mentorship in modelling, validation, strategy, product, marketing, sales, finance, and management with startup specialists;

  • Accompaniment for 02 weeks;

  • Networking with Arena Hub Associates and Sports Organizations and the other program participants to facilitate the creation of partnerships and the startup’s validation process;
