Solana Beach, CA (November 5, 2015) – Hookit, a digital platform created to support and connect athletes and brands, has been named a laureate of the Young Entreprise initiative (YEi) Start in France Accelerator Program. Hookit is one of ten start-up companies the French organization recognized for its innovation and influence within its industry.
The award is given to startup companies developing technologies that have a profound impact on their respective industries. Hookit was chosen for its one-of-a-kind data analytics platform, arguably the most robust ever developed, that allows companies to more effectively and accurately evaluate potential sports marketing investments. Some of the most recognizable and innovative companies in the world, including GoPro, NBC Sports and Toyota, have turned to Hookit for its game-changing analytics technology.

“I would like to thank YEi and the French Embassy for this prestigious award,” said Tilton. “I am confident our model can be as valuable within the European market, as it has been in North America. Sports such as soccer, tennis, rugby and cycling thrive here, and the relationships we’re able to forge through this experience will be invaluable to our European business interests.”
