Team Elevate is excited to announce that Champa Bay Sports and Quantum Evolution are now proud members of the NFL Alumni Tampa Chapter! Starting this month, all three companies will be hosting monthly community events to bring together champions of the bay across all professions.
With Tampa emerging as a hub for academia, entrepreneurship, economic development, innovation, finance, healthcare, military, media and philanthropy, Ben Sever, recently founded and launched Champa Bay Sports (CBS) to welcome sports as a powerhouse industry. The CBS team has magnetic energy as they continue to push their slogan “Champion as a lifestyle. Community as a brand.” Quantum Evolution, a close partner of Champa Bay Sports, is a revolutionary corporate wellness and bio-optimization enterprise that has started providing Nobel prize-winning wellness regimens to health advocates from professional athletes to corporate executives. “The three way partnership between Champa Bay Sports, Quantum Evolution and NFL Alumni are the types of innovative alliances that elite startups leverage for maximum brand awareness. As a cofounder and lead bio-optimization scientist, collaborating with Tampa’s fastest scaling retail brand plus the NFL Alumni’s health initiatives will maximize customer adoption, business development and credibility for all three entities. We are committed to making health, wellness, community, innovation and branding all one cohesive mission,” said Dorian Nolen, Head of Bio-Optimization Sciences, Quantum Evolution.
Champa Bay Sports has 8 full time employees, $200K+ in local investments, 20+ Strategic partners and $50K of philanthropic impact in 9 months of operation. “Although Tampa has seen Ben Sever’s software companies attract top talent and achieve Tier 1 market growth, it is still shocking that his go-to-market strategies prove to be industry agnostic. Achieving enterprise growth while at the helm of a portfolio valued over $20MM is unheard of in the southeast. This is one of many reasons I moved my global consultancy to Tampa and partnered with fellow visionaries like Ben and his team. Champa Bay is very well positioned to rival Silicon Valley, NYC, Boston and Austin,” said Maria Matarelli, Champa Bay Sports Chief Agility Officer. Tampa Bay Buccaneers Alumni and current iHeartRadio personality Ian Beckles said, “Champa Bay Sports’ commitment to healthcare, community, empowerment, philanthropy and entrepreneurship is outright inspiring. Ben treats obstacles similar to how NFL linemen treat competition- go at them with your mind, body and spirit to support the mission and never look back. With that commitment level and passionate execution, Champa Bay Sports will be a lasting pillar of our community in no time.”
Champa Bay Sports relies on four pillars: Altruistic Apparel, Community Cohesion, Pioneering Innovation and Motivational Media. From giveaways to innovation, Champa Bay Sports CEO Ben Sever actively utilizes both digital engagement as well as event-driven community collaboration to help grow the Champa Bay Sports brand. Starting in March, recently promoted VP of Strategic Partnerships, JJ Massaro, will be hosting 2-4 popup shops per week at local retail locations such as American Social, The Tampa Club and Sparkman Wharf. Be sure to stop by their retail location by the Amalie Arena for each Tampa Bay Lightning home game (513 S Florida Ave, Tampa, FL 33602). “Our goal is to expand our retail partnership syndicate to 20+ by summertime in order to drive not just profit-sharing opportunities for local businesses, but to empower our slogan, community as a brand!” –JJ Massaro
