Tampa lifestyle brand Champa Bay Sports CEO Ben Sever & philanthropist, chose 6 organizations to donate a total of $10K to after seeing a massive growth. Among them were community pillars such as Feeding Tampa Bay, empowHERment, A Kids’ Place, Children’s Cancer Center, Where Love Grows, Clothes to Kids. Ben founded Champa Bay Sports (Instagram) in 2021 and launched the Tampa-based company during the Stanley Cup finals. Within the first 3 months of operation and going viral on Instagram, Ben and his team managed to produce 20 apparel designs, acquire 15 strategic partners, employ 8 full-time staff, set up an e-commerce store and organize 6 upcoming community events that will engage the community’s creative and cohesive nature.
“After gaining my enterprise experience in NYC, I committed to bringing innovation and world-class growth to my hometown and I believe that my team is doing that. Statistics show that it takes 6-12 months just to move from an idea to incorporation, but my team is breaking the status quo and trying to put Tampa on the map. Every time I am at the helm of a project, the expectation is that the company is viable to be acquired within 18 months. That is actually the premise of my consulting company’s (MBP Ventures) name; Minimum buyable product.”
As a renowned go-to-market strategist, he believes that his coined phrase “start-up by timeline, enterprise by design” needs to be a shared sentiment in the entrepreneurial ecosystem here. Ben has a loyal team of approximately 15 serial entrepreneurs and global subject matter experts that can execute funding, strategy, website design, partnership execution, infrastructure, and legal operations within weeks due to the philosophy that communities and networks are the wave of the future in disruptive, hypergrowth businesses.
We love to see the variety of ways Ben and Champa Bay Sports are positively impacting our community and look forward to their continued efforts!
