Win-Win is a platform that connects pro athletes, charities, fans, and brands through integrated gaming mechanics; Gamified Giving.

On Win-Win, fans join online game competitions hosted by pro athletes to win epic experiential prizes, while donating to charitable causes. Athletes raise money and awareness for causes they’re passionate about, while boosting positivity around their personal brand. Charities employ a sustainable, low-effort platform to quickly raise funding, while acquiring a hard-to-reach millennial audience. Brands engage with large fan bases by leveraging the reach of the pro athletes, via co-branded campaigns, while accomplishing CSR objectives and boosting brand affinity.

Win-Win retains a percentage of user donations and brands pay for campaign integration. It’s a true #WinWin.
