JumpForward’s Brad Niedermaier learned about the company he would someday lead to an acquisition by ACTIVE Network in an unexpected way: he saw it on TV. JumpForward, which offers a full-service software platform for college athletic departments, was being featured on Shark Tank, and one of its founders was one of Niedermaier’s former classmates. Niedermaier, who had founded a similar company, contacted his former classmate to offer advice and was invited to join the company. After significant growth and a recent integration with ACTIVE Network, it now provides collegiate coaches, athletic directors, department administrators, and compliance staff the industry’s most comprehensive solution, including sports camp registration, NCAA recruiting and compliance technology, data insights, marketing tools, and budgeting and inventory management.
