»No matter how high the bar was raised, our grandfather, Adi Dassler, always found a way to make a clean jump over it. Today, we support young innovators with a unique network of mentors, investors and entrepreneurs.«
We are looking for early stage startups and founders – as well as
founders to be – in the broad commercial universe of sports as pictured below.
This applies to anyone with a great idea that is not yet founded – but also startups that have been active for a while already might meet our criteria. If in doubt don’t hesitate to get in touch with us!
Klaus, Horst and Stefan Bente are the oldest grandchildren of Adi Dassler. Together, they founded leAD Sports Accelerator to revive their grandfather’s legacy. But they're not alone: leAD is backed by an exclusive circle of international top investors from different areas that all have a strong foothold in the sports industry. Their objective is to support the visionary innovative strength of young founders with the same enthusiastic team spirit – and far beyond the accelerator program.
Please find below the latest news from various social media and web sources regarding the projects from the leAD network.
