Unique Opportunity for Skillest’s Biggest Fans and Supporters to Become Investors
San Francisco, CA – June 30, 2022 Skillest, the leading marketplace for remote golf lessons, has announced the launch of a Community Round on Wefunder, the largest platform that helps founders raise a Community Round from their most passionate customers and fans alongside venture capitalists. This Community Round invites anyone – including coaches, players, fans, supporters, friends, and family – to invest in Skillest for as little as $100 in exchange for company equity. Skillest’s Community Round will help the company try to secure $1 million in funding to expand the golf instruction marketplace.
Skillest offers 1-on-1 online lessons with top coaches for faster and easier game improvement. Many of the top golf instructors in the world teach on Skillest because the platform gives them everything they need to run an online coaching business. Skillest coaches can make over $200,000 per year teaching students remotely. Skillest gives coaches the ability to work flexible hours and have the freedom to coach from anywhere, whether it’s a driving range, at a golf course, or even their living room. Skillest also enables coaches to take their fans and followers on social media and expand the relationship to private coaching.
“We know our success up until today, and our success in the future, is dependent on our community,” said Brian Park, CEO of Skillest. “Because of that we are opening up a Community Round to give our community, supporters and customers the opportunity to invest in our success and come along this amazing ride with us.”
Golfers love the Skillest app and give it a rating of 4.9 stars on the App Store. The Skillest app provides the most effective format for golf improvement. The best way to hit the ball better and shoot lower scores, that’s been proven by tour pros for decades, is with frequent and personalized feedback from a great coach. This level of access to a coach was previously unavailable to most amateur golfers. For close to the cost of a single in-person golf lesson, Skillest customers can work on their full swing, short game and putting at the same time, remotely with their coach.
Sean Foley, one of the top golf instructors in the world, teaches on Skillest. He has coached golfers of all levels, from beginners to top pros, including Tiger Woods, Cameron Champ, Danny Willett, and Lydia Ko. “Working with the top players in the game for over two decades now, I know the most effective path to improvement is through frequent and personalized feedback” said Foley. “Skillest enables golfers to easily access and maintain that feedback loop with a network of world-class instructors, something that was once only available to professionals.”
Skillest chose Wefunder for its Community Round because Wefunder makes it as easy as possible for founders to open up funding rounds to their community. Community Rounds are changing the future of investing, now allowing anyone to invest in the companies they love. This Community Round gives Skillest customers and fans the opportunity to be a part of the company’s success as well as helps support healthy growth for the company.
“One of the most powerful forces in the world is when someone believes in you and backs it up with a bit of their own money. Community Rounds now allows that to happen at scale,” said Jonny Price, VP of Fundraising at Wefunder. “It’s a mark of prestige when a company raises a Community Round. It’s hard to build a business that your customers believe in so much that they actually want to invest their hard earned money in the company’s success.”
