Ben Sever, Chairman, CEO & Founder of eRemede, MBP Ventures, and RGA Institute, has defined himself as a pillar of the Tampa Bay community committed to Tampa’s local innovation ecosystem, local economic development efforts, and start-up atmosphere. With Tampa’s well-earned reputation of success not just in the entrepreneurial space but also as a sports powerhouse in multiple professional leagues, Ben recently founded and launched Champa Bay Sports, “Champion as a lifestyle. Community as a Brand”. After two months of operation, Champa Bay Sports has 8 full time employees, 13 strategic partners and 5 philanthropic beneficiaries. The partners, a rapidly increasing list, include a wide array of Tampa staples including but not limited to, American Social, Camp Tampa, The Florida Aquarium, ADventure Marketing, Planet Smoothie, Tampa Bay Chamber and Omni Public.
Ben Sever, a renowned philanthropist and business growth expert in Tampa Bay, took a social-first approach by going viral on Instagram (@champabay_sports) where both community empowerment and philanthropy are emphasized as the bedrock of the organization.
“In 2021, Tampa Bay solidified itself as a city that transcends the word “champion” beyond an athletic feat, but rather, a community lifestyle. Champa Bay Sports was born to highlight Champa Bay’s multi-industry commitment to championship excellence.
Champa Bay is the home of elite athletics, world-class healthcare, entrepreneurial acceleration, community empowerment, military pride, technological innovation, and economic development. From sports teams to booming businesses, Tampanians breed a champion mentality. How we do anything is how we do everything.
From the moment we wake up to the moment we go to sleep, we achieve a higher purpose than self by competing and winning the greatest game of all, life. The Champa Bay Sports community is committed to being the mecca of championship apparel, a marketplace of brand empowerment and beacon for collaborative inspiration.”—Ben Sever, Champa Bay Sports 2021 Pitch Deck
Champa Bay Sports relies on three pillars: Altruistic Apparel, Community Cohesion and Pioneering Innovation. From giveaways to hackathons, Ben actively utilizes both digital engagement as well as event-driven community collaboration to help grow the Champa Bay Sports brand.
