Digital platform for cricket CricHQ talks about growth
Posted on 5-Jun-2016 18:31. | Tags Filed under: News.



CricHQ, a digital platform for cricket, presented its growth story to an international audience of tech startups, industry leaders and international investors, at the RISE Conference in Hong Kong.

 

The RISE conference is the second websummit CricHQ has attended in the last two months, following the 2015 Collision Conference in New Orleans.

 

At Collision, CricHQ was the only New Zealand company selected to take part in the START exhibitor programme which showcases unicorn growth stage companies. At RISE, CricHQ has again been singled out to tell its growth story.

 

The aim of the RISE Conference is to connect world-leading innovators, growing tech companies and investors. CricHQ CEO Simon Baker says it’s great to be involved and to be able to promote CricHQ to a broad international audience.

 

“Being involved in international conferences of this calibre is a fantastic opportunity for CricHQ to meet with and forge relationships with some of the world’s other leading technology companies,” Simon Baker said.

 

“It gives our team the chance to connect with like-minded experts on new developments within IoT, ecommerce and FinTech. It also allows CricHQ to meet possible technology partners within focus areas such as mobile wallets, VR and video technology.

 

“CricHQ has big ambitions; we will be doubling our market share in 2016/17 and ultimately see the platform serving sports beyond cricket.  To do this we need to connect with technology partners with specific expertise and international reach. The opportunity to catch up with investors informally at RISE is also invaluable. CricHQ is currently well funded, but building relationships is still a priority as we’re always looking to connect with strategic investors who in the future could add value to the company aside from capital.

 


“Our story is still being forged, but at essence it’s about making cricket even better – using technology to make it easy for players, fans, coaches, schools, clubs and cricket’s governing bodies to engage within the sport,” Simon Baker said.
