Obsesh Joins Stadia Ventures Portfolio and 2020 Fall Cohort


Obsesh, the first online marketplace connecting top athletes to fans through personalized, premium video-based products, has been chosen by Stadia Ventures as its newest portfolio company and member of its Fall 2020 Cohort.

Obsesh, cofounded by Tracy Benson and Jonalyn Morris, joins three other early-stage start-ups spanning eSports and AI in a 14-week program led by Stadia, the top early-stage, sports- and esports-focused venture capital firm with an accelerator program, in addition to investments in 30 portfolio companies.

Stadia commented publicly this week, “As we embark on our 11th cohort (and our 2nd fully-virtual program), the four companies are the definition of diversity. Two companies are female led, while the other two companies are led by persons of color. Our excitement isn’t just because of the diversity of the cohort – it’s our process that continues to attract and identify the best founders/companies worthy of investment.”

In addition to Stadia, Obsesh CEO Tracy Benson is set to present at the Newchip Accelerator Q4 Online Demo Day and World Startup Conference on Tuesday, September 22 at 9:00 am PT. Access to the week long event is open and free to all investors, entrepreneurs, and industry thought leaders.

Tracy is also speaking at the Newchip Conference on the panel, Female Entrepreneurs As a Driving Catalyst For Global Innovation & Change, Thursday, September 24th at 1:40 pm PT. She joins Cecilia Toscana Rodriguez, Founder and CEO of Execboard, Alicia Driskill, Founder and CEO of EvolveHer, and moderator Aeryn Cagle from Newchip.

Obsesh solves the problem that 99% of top athletes cannot make money doing what they love. Now, through the Obsesh marketplace, athletes can sign up in minutes and easily begin selling custom video products that allow them to make a living, build their brand, and strengthen their fan relationships.

The Newchip Accelerator is the leading online accelerator program for Early Stage to Series A startups who are serious about scaling their businesses to the next level. To register for their Online Demo Day and World Startup Conference, visit: https://lnkd.in/ed-DdEp.
