Almost 33% of Brazilians practice sports and physical activities as entertainment and experience the pain of organizing sports that involves many players. Through technology, Appito is the reinventing this industry, creating the
largest online sports community in Brazil and connecting it to its own branded offline facilities. The idea is to combine the high service of the offline experience with an App that helps customers to have a gamified experience, which offers the
possibility to schedule games and make player rankings. The sportstech aims to implement an artificial intelligence system connected to cameras that capture and analyze data to enable players to have a report on their performance such as
the number of shots an athlete has taken on goal, number of assists, distance covered on the field, etc. Currently, they have more than 800,000 users.
Appito’s French founders, Rodolphe Timsit and Alexandre Delepau, have a background in economics and finance. Both have worked in investment banks, such as JP Morgan and BNP Paribas in Europe. They’ve met in Brazil through the french circle and experienced a problem as
amateur football players in the country, since most facilities for scheduling sports events in Brazil are crumbling, fragmented and offer a poor experience to their customers. When Rodolphe and Alexandre quickly realized they weren’t the only ones with this problem, the opportunity to undertake in this market appeared.
