A Grand Rapids-based company that provides high schools with their own sports websites and its co-founder were recently selected as an Endeavor entrepreneur, a designation that gives the company access to professional services and resources as a way to further its growth.
Ryan Vaughn and his Varsity News Network were chosen at the 66th Endeavor International Selection Panel in Boston. He is one of 34 entrepreneurs representing 18 companies and 12 countries that were selected at the ISP.
VNN was chosen for its high-growth potential to change the consumer experience with high school athletics. It gives high school athletic departments a centralized online presence to connect and communicate with their local school communities. The platform is also an opportunity for the athletic department to sell advertising, which can generate revenue for the school. Universities and colleges already have a similar service.
NEF coached Varsity News Network team in 2011. The team was the showcase presenter in Jan 2012.
Congratulations to Varsity News Network!!
