Coacher – Footballer pitches coaching app to the crowd

Coacher – Footballer pitches coaching app to the crowd

Coacher is a new Sheffield-based technology business set up by a former Portuguese professional footballer who has turned to crowdfunding in a bid to raise investment for his coaching app.

Coacher has so far raised £26,613 on Seedrs towards a target of £100,000 which, if successful, would value the business at £1m.

Among the investors to date is York-based internet entrepreneur Dan Conlon, who founded web host Donhost while at school before selling it to PIPEX Communications and establishing cloud storage service Humyo.

Coacher was co-founded by Hugo Cortez, who played professionally until he sustained a career-ending injury at 22 when he started coaching.

According to Coacher, its football coaching tool app captures and analyses game and training data that is traditionally done inefficiently using pen, paper, and Excel and will initially be available in English, Portuguese and Spanish. Coacher is targeting football coaches and football clubs and estimates there are six million coaches worldwide.

Cortez and his business partner Vitor Almeida have been supported by Sheffield start-up accelerator DotForge who are based at The Electric Works.
