Feelin’ Like a Chameleon
Lululemon has high hopes for future revenue, anchored by growing men’s sales and penetration into the Nike-dominated sneaker scene. But Nike always stays one step ahead, and a recent trademark signals their next undertaking: cryptokicks. Meanwhile, Under Armour’s shift to user-generated-content reflects a harsh reality: modern consumers don’t care what brands have to say about their own products.
The Chargers’ social team is winning the offseason by “building a culture of no bad ideas,” a motto that might make Giants fans queasy… Mel Kiper’s grades aside, it’s too early to declare industry winners from this weekend’s draft. Still, Instagram’s first-of-its-kind shopping experience to serve draft viewers in real-time and Nashville’s record ratings proved the event remains a must-watch.
The Big Leagues
Green Bay might be the smallest market in American sports, but TitletownTech has the Wilpons and Silicon Valley zoning in on the city as a budding investment hub. Speaking of green stamps of approval, Beats co-founder Jimmy Iovine got in on the PFL’s Series C round as the league looks to expand its global audience through data, analytics and big bookings to take on UFC.
