About us

Upside global is a leading a sports tech organization that brings innovation (AMS, sleep tech, injury prevention tools, hydration /electrolyte assessment device ) and insights (vendor survey reports, vendor analysis..) to pro teams (PSG, Arsenal FC, Chelsea FC, Brooklyn Nets/NBA, Penguins/NHL, NY Mets/MLB, Boston RedSox/MLB, 49ers/NFL..).

The Upside recently launched the Upside Tech Scouting platform, the world’s first platform providing granular anonymized team data on specific teams (NBA, NFL, MLB, NCAA, Premier League, Laliga, Ligue 1, Bundesliga, national teams, Olympic teams, pro rugby, pro tennis..). For each team profile, users can see critical information provided by teams such as their annual sports performance budget, the vendor(s) that they are currently using, their rating per vendor and the price range that they are paying for each vendor.
