"The KiwiTech team looks forward to sharing our extensive tech and entrepreneurial expertise with Q4 Sports and help them reach new horizons."
"Q4 Sports' mantra is purpose, passion, commitment and focus; essential quality traits that all successful athletes and influencers must possess to succeed. These same core traits also apply to our day-to-day lives; everything in our lives comes down to the fourth quarter. Q4 is the intersection between business and sports and has successfully created a turnkey platform for global influencers, empowering them to own their own brand instead of endorsing for another company for a fee", said Aaron Sokol, CEO and Co-Founder of Q4 Sports. "We make athletes and influencers our business partners, thus aligning interests and allowing them to share directly in our success. We help athletes and influencers launch their own brand. Our innovative business model involves working with athletes and influencers to help them design their own shoes which we manufacture and take to market. Player Edition shoes (PEs) for athletes and Special Edition (SEs) shoes for influencers, giving professional athletes and influencers the opportunity to customize, wear and sell their own shoes."
"We are excited about our alliance with KiwiTech. We believe this collaboration will allow us to expand globally our technological needs, as well as provide us with growth and networking opportunities," he added.
