What they do: Hyper Wear creates innovative sports performance training equipment. Its first product, Hyper Vest, is a patented weighted vest technology that allows for a fuller range of motion and easier breathing than is possible with existing technology. Other products include the SandBell, a neoprene bag that combines many of the characteristics of a dumbbell, medicine ball and a kettlebell while preventing injuries common to those equipment types.
How we helped: TVL assisted in diligence efforts as Hyper Wear sought angel funding. Few potential investors had experience in the fitness equipment market, so TVL associates worked to size the market and evaluate potential exit opportunities. Specifically, the group focused on the military and education markets, using Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests to find fitness equipment expenditures in public universities.
The latest: Hyper Wear has yet to lock in funding, but the company continues to develop products, refine production and make sales as they pursue funding.
