Best Innovation


What motivated you to start your business, what challenges did you overcome?

As collegiate track and field athletes, we noticed a glaring gap in the collegiate sports recruiting process. As a result, both student-athletes looking for college and university opportunities were missing out on their best fit and collegiate programs were wasting resources on ineffective and expensive recruiting methods. The first step after noticing the problem was to verify it on a macro scale. Market research showed us that the problems we observed weren’t confined to those in our line of sight, but to the collegiate sport space as a whole. A challenge for us was to create a unique and scalable recruiting model that uses data and objectivity versus bias and agency, while also providing equitable access for student-athletes, regardless of their socioeconomic background. Streamline Athletes is not a recruiting agency; our business model allows athletes free access and provides long-term value for our college and university clients. Another challenge early on, as non-tech founders, was to bring in a technical co-founder to ensure we had a scalable solution. Covid-19 was a hurdle as well; our company’s primary revenue stream comes from collegiate programs. With university budgets being frozen in early 2020, we had to withstand the impact of the pandemic by pushing revenue out several months and instead using the opportunity to highlight how it’s the right time for data-driven online recruitment to become the norm.

Why do you deserve to win the Best Innovation award?

Innovation is not about having the shiniest product. It’s about having a solution that solves a problem for its customer base in a more effective way than any other solution available. It’s about timing. Streamline Athletes is the best innovator because our solution for collegiate programs saves them 80% of the time they spend on recruiting and allows them to do so during a global pandemic. When athletes were not competing and coaches were unsure about how to recruit and the future of their rosters, Streamline Athletes was there with a new approach to give them confidence with a fully-online, easy-to-use system for athlete recruitment. At our core is our vision to empower athletes for a life without limits and our mission to reveal opportunities for athletes, so they can move forward as confident and inspired individuals. Our innovation is the first platform that democratizes access for student-athletes to find opportunities to continue in their sport at the university level despite their socioeconomic background. Because of the high value we provide to collegiate teams and long-term relationships we’ve built with those teams, our revenue model allows for athletes to experience recruitment without agency fees. Our database of information on the collegiate landscape and our tools for filtering and contacting coaches gives student-athletes and families the confidence they deserve as they make one of the biggest decisions of their lives.

Why do you deserve to win the Best Youth Entrepreneur award?

Streamline Athletes was not only founded by youth entrepreneurs, it's operated by a team of driven, passionate youth. In 2017, we founded the company and embarked on a journey of market research, discovery, and product planning. In 2018, we laid the initial framework for the revenue model and product. In 2019, we raised a round of funding, brought in key early employees, and launched our track and field specific platform for student-athletes. In 2020, we'd reached enough student-athletes using our platform that we could launch our B2B market offering for collegiate programs. We adapted throughout the pandemic, bringing in revenue and growing our team along the way. We closed the year with a second round of pre-Seed funding. In 2021, the team of youth entrepreneurs behind Streamline Athletes have found success by reaching $5K MRR, onboarding 28 colleges/universities as paying clients, and have grown to a staff size of 27. We've raised over $350K in investment and are currently undergoing due diligence for our $1MM Seed round. Most importantly, though, Streamline Athletes has made the lives of student-athletes seeking college/university opportunities easier. Additionally, Streamline Athletes' youth leadership are committed to continuing to build an inclusive and diverse organizational culture that not only supports the community externally, but provides opportunity for its people internally.
