Benedikt Weber, founder of Sports-Mania, attended the BRG in the Au during his school days. After graduating from high school, he carried out his community service at the Elisabethinum Kindergarten in Axams. In the fall of 2018, Benedikt started his bachelor studies "Business & Management" at the Management Center Innsbruck. Even before he began his studies, Benedikt had always been keen on the idea of running his own company and realizing a start-up idea.
Having found it difficult to engage in various sports where it is not necessary to make binding membership commitments to clubs or associations, he founded Sports-Mania in the fall of 2018. During his studies and through attending Career Center events, Benedikt was able to gain important insights into entrepreneurship. Subjects such as accounting, marketing and business law also taught important fundamentals that are essential for the foundation and management of a company.
Benedikt also made use of the MCI's start-up support, which developed interesting contacts with the marketing team, the Tirol business start-up center and the MAD Group. The Winter School "Digital Entrepreneurship" was also beneficial in further refining the company and developing new marketing strategies.
Sports-Mania is a platform on which up to 18 different types of sports can be booked. You can find different offers from Innsbruck's coolest sports providers and train without a binding commitment.
"It was important for me to create a sports offer which you only pay for when you use it. Sports-Mania is the only provider in Innsbruck where you can train without a binding contract and without any fixed costs. From yoga, gymnastics, group workouts, dancing, outdoor sports and ball sports to nutrition lectures and cooking workshops - everything can be booked with Sports-Mania and, therefore, it is possible for students to create an individual sports program adapted to changing timetables and examination phases. Sports in a relaxed atmosphere, getting to know new people, networking and trying out what you have always wanted to do. Monday yoga, Wednesday beach volleyball and Saturday morning a group workout - at student-friendly prices - only at Sports-Mania.
Of course, you can also register for advanced courses and modules and thus secure an unbeatable price advantage allowing for more efficient training. With a free user account, you have the possibility to complete the registration for a unit with a single click, no matter whether from the comfort of your home or on the road with your mobile phone. If something unforeseen should come up, your free user account allows you to cancel a training unit, in due time, without incurring any costs. Of course, you can also book Sports-Mania offers without a user account, but the free user account ensures for even more spontaneous use", points out Benedikt on the unique advantages of his company.
