“In the Sports Zone was elated to gain $43,500.00 in funding through Alabama Launchpad. We have used this money to accelerate our business. It’s hard to believe that we started right here in Alabama with two teams in 2012 and by the end of 2015, we’ll be launching 100 teams. This funding helped us accelerate growth in major areas in order to secure licensing with very critical leagues and brands. The coaches and mentors provided through Birmingham Business Alliance and Alabama Launchpad were phenomenal in guiding important business decisions and they continue to provide guidance and support. I’m grateful for this opportunity.”
