Tired of being eliminated from football tournaments, I, Oliver’s CEO, decided to incorporate trackers to help my team perform better. My only options were either GPS tailored for the elite or generic wearables. In our analysis, these products are difficult to use and expensive.
They validated the problems that a lack of data brings to the global market of 270M non-elite footballers: it’s hard to improve what you can’t measure and recurring injuries that can be avoided.
Oliver was born to democratize talent evolution. Combining a smart tracker, located in the player's sock, with AI algorithms which translated it into actionable insights; hosted under an easy-to-digest UX.
In 2019 the team raised €400k including well-known business angels in Spain like Albert Armengol and Fernando Pons to manufacture the first batch of 2,200 units.
Since the market launch in July 2020, it never stop selling the ‘Hardware as a Service’ to more than 30 teams, male and female, including Real Madrid Campus, RC Celta and Nacional Uruguay; achieving €9k/month recurring revenue (2021: €116k revenue, -€34k EBITDA), 1,5k registered users, and key partnerships with stakeholders like Cantabria's Federation.
In early 2021 OLIVER launched the B2C model thanks to a deal with Amazon.
Now, OLIVER is raising to grow, hiring top talent across marketing & sales and aiming to manufacture a further 5k units.
