Co-founded by Andrew “Hawk” Hawkins and Troy Jones, StatusPRO provides a sports technology and gaming company that combines player data, augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) to create a suite of training and gaming products, Its training platform uses real-time player data to power holographic experiences that give players the ability to simulate any practice or game scenario without the physical impact that comes with playing the game. Players are able to simulate virtual practice sessions while in different locations, to mitigate the effects of having less time on the field. The company also is planning to leverage its platform to expand into the gaming market.
