The rise of AR/VR will play a crucial role in sports tech in the future.

Fred Toney, General Partner at 9.58 Ventures, remarked, “Cognitive optimization is the next frontier in athletic training. NeuroTrainer has captured the attention of NCAA coaches, professional teams and athletes, and Department of Defense affiliates, poised to redefine these sectors comprehensively.” NeuroTrainer is among 9.58 Ventures’ inaugural investments, specializing in top performers in athletics and technology.

With immediate plans to expand into college and professional sports, NeuroTrainer leverages 9.58 Venture’s extensive network of professional athletes, coaches, and investors, including Deion Jones (NFL), David Vanterpool (NBA), Jalen Mills (NFL), and Francis Tiafoe (ATP), to introduce teams like the LA Galaxy to groundbreaking cognitive enhancement. Serving as the official cognitive training system for the LA Galaxy, NeuroTrainer is already making a significant impact. Michael Rabasca, Director of Cognitive Performance at LA Galaxy, lauded the platform: “One of my players recently remarked, ‘Thank God for NeuroTrainer—it’s something I never had at a prior club.’

This new venture funding ensures that many more athletes will share that sentiment. It is also to help boost fan engagement.
