Metrica Sports started at Startup Village to develop and commercialize the FootMapp software that allows coaches of professional football clubs to analyse matches, provide players with feedback, and make decisions. Ruben Saavedra, co-Founder and CEO: “We have PhDs on our team, but no experience as entrepreneurs. At Startup Village, we were helped with legal, financial and other challenges. My advice to starting business founders: follow your dreams and your ideas. If there’s a market, go for it”.
