Building a multi-sided marketplace requires hard work and cash, James Begley has learned.
Not only is James the co-host of Rooster Radio, he is the founder of PickStar, the revolutionary marketplace to book sports stars for any kind of paid opportunity. Online marketplaces are tricky at the best of times, but the layers involved in PickStar are particularly challenging.
Not only is there the elite athletes and the clients who want to book them, there's also a system of athlete managers, clubs and leagues to negotiate. Over the last few years, James has managed to grow his list of athletes to more than 800, facilitate over 1000 commercial opportunities through the platform for and keep everyone involved in the process happy!
He shares key lessons learned about starting and growing an online marketplace.
