CoachUp’s One Year Anniversary

 

ann 2Time flies, that’s for sure.  We can hardly believe that this month we celebrated our one year anniversary.

Although we started out small, we had  big dreams…and still do.  We want to help kids change the trajectory of their lives through sports.  In just 12 months we have grown from zero to thirteen full-time employees with our very own office space in Boston, and over 7000 coaches across the country!  It’s been a blast and we’re incredibly appreciative of all the opportunities and support we’ve gotten along the way.

Here’s a quick look at what we’ve been able to accomplish in this short time:

CoachUp Office View

View from CoachUp’s new home at MassChallenge!

Just over a month ago, we were named a MassChallenge 2012 finalist! Today, we are thrilled to share our excitement as we move into our new office space right on the harbor. Beyond the great view, we can’t wait to get started working among so many other great startups.

MassChallenge is a tremendous program that receives over one thousand applications from startups every year. We were humbled to be chosen as one of the 125 finalists. The ultimate goal for every company here is the capital that MassChallenge awards to the eventual winner to help with funding, but the networking opportunities, as well as the significant benefits of the three month accelerator program are not to be ignored.With our official launch, the coverage we received in The Boston Globe. and our move to our new, beautiful office space, it has been an exciting couple of months at CoachUp. We look forward to more excitement and success in the near future.
