this is coachwhisperer

the idea

As a passionate athlete, our co-founder and CEO Philipp Zacher recognized the problems his coaches were confronted with on a daily basis very early on: Poor communication conditions on the pitch, too little time to address the individual needs of the athletes and, above all, frequent absences of players due to injuries caused by physical overexertion. In 2015, he first came up with the idea for a communication solution that would enable coaches to coach their players individually and keep an eye on their performance at all times.

the process

Supported by the sports science institute of the Friedrich Schiller University Jena, this idea became a practical concept. A successful EXIST application together with co-founder and CTO Julien Then was followed in November 2020 by a year of founders’ scholarship. Within this year, we were able to convince further partners of our product and win several competitions: among others, Thuringia’s largest technology competition getstarted2gether, the Karl Kolle Prize for the best tech startup in Central Germany and the innovation prize Thuringia. In May 2022, we received seven-figure seed funding from bm|t, MBG Thüringen and Sparkasse Jena-Saale-Holzland. This lays the foundation for our expansion – beyond football into other sports as well!
