With Zapbuild, Sportsharing-Network makes travel sporty

DALLAS, July 15 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — What happens when a professional cyclist experiences pain points as a traveling athlete? Is he giving up his passion for sports travel or is he finding a solution? Faced with the challenges of missing the right equipment or not having access to the local community, or not knowing the best routes, Mario Vogt founded Sportsharing-Network and, with the technical support of Zapbuild, began his entrepreneurial journey.

Mario Vogt was a professional cyclist for many years and had a few sore spots as a traveling athlete. He then bought a house in Spain and equipped it with everything cyclists need and rented it out. It was very successful but not scalable. This idea led to the idea of ​​a sports-friendly accommodation platform. This is how Sportsharing-Network was born to make cycling holidays easy and smooth. The platform covers customers in all aspects. Mario was able to do this with the support of his technical partner Zapbuild.

“Zapbuild executed the construction of the website perfectly and on time, which is of course crucial for the success of such a platform. Their expertise in web application development and a strong understanding of the sports community and of its challenges resulted in creating an impressive user experience. We also have high hopes from their team. At the moment, the first users have already registered and some accommodations and training groups have already been uploaded .

Sumeet Soni, CEO of Zapbuild, and himself passionate about sports and fitness, thinks that sports startups have a bright future because the subject is part of people’s passion. “Health, well-being and sport occupy a central place in everyone’s life. Simply because the world has realized that a good life cannot happen without good health. Since sport appeals to a person’s self-realization goals and enthusiasm, we designed the Sportsharing-Network platform with these aspects in mind. Our team brainstormed intensely with Mario to understand the platform’s niche characteristics and user preferences during development.

The future would see Sportsharing-Network become the preferred and leading platform and marketplace for all things sports including accommodation, connections with locals, equipment rental, tuition, event registration , etc. Also, in many types of sports, not just cycling as it stands now. Mario clarified this:

“The biggest challenge is to get the attention of users to participate in the platform. Right now we are facing a simple chicken and egg problem. It will only become interesting for users to register only if there are enough offers, but on the other hand, landlords will only register their accommodation if they feel that they thereby reach more potential customers. this problem by bringing a lot of value to the sharing of local training groups.

The ease of being on this platform is another plus. People with a spare room in their accommodation or perhaps an entire accommodation can easily become a host with Sportsharing-Network. Some hosts, who are athletic themselves, also love to share their extra sports gear with others who have the same passion. Indeed, it seems to be an interesting platform for cycling enthusiasts. Athletes or athletic travelers who have accommodation suitable for the sport can get in touch with Mario directly at sportsharingou@gmail.com and share their feedback and opinions to help make the Sportsharing network better and stronger for athletes and sports fans around the world.
