‘Seyu – Together for victory!’ landed in the Hungarian startup ecosystem in the second half of 2018. Some months later news broke to the industry that we were something special. We are one of the most promising startups of 2019 – in the eyes of our investor, Hiventures.
We received this honour for the thing we love the most: connecting millions of fans around the world with their stars on the pitches, courts and in the pools on sport events. One of Europe’s most active VC appreciated the work that we have done in 2018 by listing ‘Seyu – Together for victory!’ in its 2019 yearbook, alongside with nine other startups in its portfolio.
Team Seyu scored their first opportunity to prove the power of fan-generated content at the 21st IHF Women’s Junior Handball World Championship, little less than eleven months ago. During the tournament, thousands of fans supported the Hungarian ladies with Seyu for the happiness of players and organizers alike.
2018 also saw our swiftly rising venture to entertain fans at the UWW Wrestling World Championships and secure contracts with the biggest players in the Hungarian sport. In 2019 we managed to further enlarge the number of our partners in handball, waterpolo and football beside working with the Hungarian Handball Federation.
After already participating in four world events in Hungary and another four is on the horizon for 2019, our startup reached a phase and maturity to enter foreign markets in handball and football. Currently in talks with clubs and partners in top football leagues such as the Bundesliga, Serie A and La Liga, our focus is on strengthening our team of ten talented individuals and on closing a Seed funding round.
Interests received from VCs in Europe and Hiventures to participate in the next investment round, reassures us that we can continue the rapid exponential growth required from us by the European sportmarket.
