FUNDING FOR ATHLETES
SHOULD BE EASY
All talented athletes deserve a chance to reach the top. Only a handful of them make enough money. Funding needs to be easier for the 15 million athletes worldwide. That’s our mission. So that they can become the best they can be and reach the top.
Over 10.000 talented athletes have sign-up already. Do you also want easier funding for your sports career? Support the mission now.
WHAT DO WE DO?
Peakz makes long-term funding for athletes easier. The road to the top should be a joint effort between athletes, fans and brands, and profit for all those involved. We’re creating a completely new way of fundraising for athletes, by making it more fun and lucrative for the helping fans and brands. Long-term funding made fun. Long-term funding made fun.
HOW DO WE DO THAT?
Peakz is a worldwide online scoutfunding platform in which athletes can raise money easier than ever before, and fans are automatically rewarded for their support. It's interesting for fans and brands to scout an athlete and give him financial support. We constantly offer new options for athletes to reward their scouts. That’s how the group of scouts grows. And more scouts means more funding for athletes.
TOGETHER WE WILL SOLVE
THE FUNDING PROBLEM
Do you feel the funding problem needs to be solved? Support the mission. Thousands of supporters is the definitive proof for investors that funding needs to be easier. That scoutfunding needs to exist. Peakz will be built with their financial support. You’ll be able to kickstart your fundraising campaign on Peakz before the summer 2020.
WE’RE COMMITTED TO OUR DREAM
We’re Peakz. Crazy about sports and innovation. We have a goal. We make sport funding easier. More inspiring. More fun. Money shouldn’t be an obstacle, let alone a defining factor in the race to the top. That conviction is our drive.

Peakz is Michiel’s way to combine his two biggest passions: sports and innovation. Even as a little boy he was fascinated by every sport that touched his life. Skiing, football, hockey, golf, tennis, sport is his life. He enjoys it even more now that his three kids are crazy about it, too.
After years of creating business opportunities and building ideas as product manager, he’s now discovered something that can really change the world of sports. The world of sports could be more inspiring and competitive. As long as money doesn’t play a defining role. He wants to create equal opportunities for all athletes that aspire to a professional athletic career. For them he quit his job. For them he started Peakz.
One way or another Arturo’s life has always been linked to both sports and computers. From skiing at the age of 3 to swimming, surfing, triathlon and currently sports climbing, you can see he is one of those sport addicts.
Unfortunately back in the 80’s sports was seen more as a passion than as a professional career and so he had to focus on another career later on. This turned out to be computers. Building platforms from scratch, designing the architecture, creating a smooth and fast frontend on web and mobile is something Arturo loves to do.
After years of building great applications as lead developer it was time for Arturo to not only build a platform that truly fits his passion and ambition, but also a team and company.
With Peakz he wants to make it possible for athletes to have a living without giving away their passion.
Theo is our serial tech start-up entrepreneur. Innovation is his thing. How could it be better, smarter, faster? How would it work? He sees opportunity in a sea of problems. This absolute passion is building companies. To bring start-ups to life. He knows the importance of a great team. The involvement, cooperation, responsibility, all pieces of a puzzle that need to “fit” if the business is to succeed.
That “fit” was there with Paylogic and Homerr, two of his successful start-ups. And now Peakz. He got in as an investor, but he’s also aboard as an advisor. He forces success by supporting the team.

SOLVING A SERIOUS PROBLEM
Funding is a primary cause for concern to many athletes. This should not be the case. Gathering money is a distraction to athletic performance. Not all talent raises enough for their big break. If sports become a privilege for the rich, we’ll miss out on inspiration. That’s what sport does: it inspires and connects our society. What do we do if we can’t identify with future athletic heroes? What would that do to our kid’s winning mentality?
