Diamond Kinetics, a sports science startup developing a revolutionary new technology platform to improve player performance in baseball and softball, today announced that it is one of nine startups selected nationally to participate in the prestigious Startup Competition and Trade Show at the 2014 MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference being held in Boston, MA on February 28-March 1, 2014.  

As part of the competition Diamond Kinetics will have “4 Good Minutes” to explain their business and how they are revolutionizing the sports industry. The company with the best pitch as determined by a panel of judges will receive a cash prize and bragging rights as the “most promising” startup at the conference.

Using real-time quantitative data and biomechanics feedback, Diamond Kinetics makes it possible for players and coaches to measure performance, identify improvement areas based on those measurements, and then address specific skill gaps.

Diamond Kinetics’ revolutionary motion analysis technology builds upon PhD-level engineering, physics, and scientific research completed at the University of Michigan and the University of Pittsburgh, to create an easy-to-use interface for players and coaches.

“We’re excited to have a chance to compete against such a strong group of startups in the sports analytics and technology space,” said C.J. Handron, Diamond Kinetics Co-Founder and CEO.  “Diamond Kinetics is leading a fundamental change in the way baseball players improve their performance by using motion analysis—we’re bringing academically validated science together with a player- and coach-centric platform.”
