Our goal is to support young, talented athletes. We show the athletes how they should present themselves to sponsors, which factors are important in a sponsorship and what is important after signing a contract. With the help of become-a-pro, also young talents can prove their skills and receive sponsorships. The sponsors are also looking for newcomers for their brands. The more young talents are supported, the more the sport is pushed. Cohesion is important to us in this respect, we are always there for our users and also provide good advice. Through our service we take over many tasks in sports sponsoring, which all athletes have and can be summarized once. We want to generate a central platform, a community, in sports sponsoring.
The become-a-pro project was initiated by Martin Werz. He is the founder and managing director of become-a-pro. Through his experience in freeskiing, biking, wakeboarding and kite surfing he has recognized the big problem in some sports. In contrast to the established sports, there are no training centres and youth development programmes in new or trend sports. Nevertheless we want to help the athletes in these sports as well. This is why he initiated the project to support young talents and to make full use of their potential. But we also want to support athletes who have skills but cannot equip themselves with expensive equipment.
become-a-pro is based in Laupheim, a central location to many popular spots. So we are fast in the scene. Digitalisation brings completely new possibilities into sports sponsoring, because you don’t have to travel far to discover new talents. The first information and potential partners can be analysed and found within seconds from the office or at home. Thus an enormous potential for athletes to connect globally and find sponsors.
More about Martin
Hi, my name is Martin and I am the founder and managing director of become-a-pro. I recognized the necessity for an idea like become-a-pro very early. Young athletes in action sports often train by themselves, in difference to athletes of established sports, who train and are supported in clubs or sports centres. It is difficult for actionsports athletes to get in contact with sponsors. Very often sponsoring requests are sent to the info@ email address, which are often ignored due to many requests. Through become-a-pro every athlete with potential now has the possibility to find a sponsor. For this reason I have founded become-a-pro. My passion is the action sport. Every free minute I spend with freeskiing, mountainbiking, wakeboarding or kite surfing. Therefore, my full attention and engagement lies with become-a-pro.
Connect with Julia
Hi I’m Julia from Munich,
it’s always been clear to me that I need a job that has something to do with sports! Because I practise a lot of sport myself and enjoy spending my weekends in the mountains. Snowboarding, hiking, playing soccer, doing big bike tours or just going to the gym, that’s my thing. I support become-a-pro as a working student in marketing. That fits quite well to my previous professional career. At the moment I am studying online communication in my master’s degree, but before that I also gained experience in companies like SPORT1 or Springer. Feel free to talk with me at the next event that I’m sure to start with
