Run Adam, India’s first 360 degree sports Tech-Ecosystem, created with a vision to help realize every sporting dream was launched by M.S. Dhoni. The Indian cricket sensation and former Indian Cricket Captain bought 25 percent stake in the company within his personal capacity and will take up the role as a mentor & brand ambassador of Run Adam.

M.S.Dhoni, a Padma Bhushan and Padma Shri awardee, says, “Run Adam will play a significant role in aspiring sportspersons’ life to help achieve their dreams. I have faced challenges during the initial stages of my career and I see Run Adam filling a vacuum. The sports ecosystem will naturally help identify, help and nurture sporting talent early and this can change the destinies of sportspersons as also the future of sports in India. When you help sportspersons achieve their full potential, you propel the sporting quotient of the entire country. My decision to take stake in the company was due to the passion of the team and their vision for sportspersons.”

The bootstrapped tech company, Run Adam acts a platform to connect athletes with resources, including sponsors, experts, coaches, academies, specialists. It is an analytics-based sporting platform that empowers the sporting world. It also provides instant and easy access to resources across the country. Run Adam is available for download on Google Play Store and Apple Store and the registration on Run Adam is free for the sporting community.

Commenting on this occasion, K. Yeragaselavan, CEO & MD, Run Adam, says, “India is yet to achieve its full potential in sports and this is not because there is a lack of talent in the country. Pursuing sports is expensive in terms of money, time and other sacrifices that one has to make. Most sportspersons are self-funded and often don’t come from affluent backgrounds, and many cannot reach their goal mainly due to lack of access to resources. Run Adam aims to bridge this gap in sports. We are excited and encouraged by the support that a stalwart like M. S. Dhoni has given us.”
