Wrestling is a small sport that had a huge impact on me growing up, but is largely ignored by major software players. I'm working on WrestlingIQ to make software specifically for the sport and carve out a living.

Doubling down on club team software

I signed up my first club team to use WrestlingIQ for payments and parent/wrestler registration. I'm going to attempt to build out 25 founding club teams in an attempt to build up the business. I've decided to focus a lot on club teams for several reasons. First, they are real businesses, willing to spend money. Two, they have full control over their decisions (no athletic department).

Struggling to differentiate

After a first, generally successful season, I'm struggling to differentiate WrestlingIQ from other products on the market. Coming out of this, my hypothesis is that the wrestling community is supportive of tech coming from within and prefer this over big companies. This will be my strategy (personal relationships, playing up my ties to the sport) to get the first wave of paying customers.

First beta season

For the first season at WrestlingIQ I managed to snag two customers to use it in beta form. Stanford University and Skyline High School in my home state of Washington.
