We are building *the* College and High School Performing Arts hub uniting performers, fans, friends, family, and sponsors around March Madness meets Pitch Perfect type competitor brackets in 20 entertainment genres. From A Cappella to Step to Gospel to Bollywood to DJing and more we are uniquely monetizing these untapped markets.
In 5 years, we will be the NCAA/ESPN of College and High School Performing Arts. That space is completely fragmented, underexposed and unmonetized, which presents us with a huge opportunity. The model follows the way the NCAA developed, from the initial group formed in 1906. Today, 480,000 NCAA athletes generate $14+ billion in revenue. There are six times that many student performers, and we will grow accordingly.
