Compete Hub is an online social directory, targeted at providing a database of every triathlon in the world, with a unique personalized, social recommendation engine. We will help people discover new races, manage their race calendar and share all of this with friends. Revenue is driven by event organizers listing on the site, incentivized by the single platform and wide reach that Compete Hub will provide.
These particular athletes struggle to properly find the right races to participate in. Today there is a fragmented market of magazines, web sites, review sites, directories, social outlets, and traditional branding and marketing that aid this problem, but there isn't one definitive solution. Additionally, the communication path before the athlete registers, after they register, on the day of the event, and after the event is not properly understood by the organizers of the race. Opportunities to facilitate referrals, retain the customer, or up-sell are often missed.
