The Eporro, LLC Story
The word "eporro" has Greek roots with the English word "next." Eporro, LLC launched its BETA website, Eporro.com, in the state of Alabama in September 2008. The mission was simple; assist high school student-athletes in becoming "the next one" for college coaches, in all sports, who are looking for that "next best athlete" to fill the open spot they are recruiting for their respective program.
Signing up individual high schools to a membership program that allowed all of their student-athletes to use Eporro.com and create a Recruit Profile that can be sent to college coaches via email, Eporro.com had a great deal of success in the 2008-09 athletic year. With more than 25 schools from around Alabama using Eporro.com to market their athletes and college coaches from around the country accessing its database to view these student-athletes, Eporro, LLC decided it was time to launch a new phase of the business.
The Birth of NextSpex.com
Combining all of the features provided by Eporro.com with newly programmed features from feedback received in the testing phase, Eporro, LLC began programming NextSpex.com in the Fall of 2009, one year after launching its BETA website.
The new objective of distribution is to allow any state high school athletic association OR state high school coaches association to commit to a strategic partnership with Eporro, LLC. Upon this commitment, every school and student-athlete within that state has FREE access to the basic features of NextSpex.com along with the ability to gain premium features for only $19 when they upgrade their membership and "Go Pro."
On the other side of the fence, college coaches can not only be contacted via email, by NextSpex.com Recruit Profile users, but they can now have their own Coach Profiles that showcase their programs to student-athletes, amongst other features and capabilities.
Currently, Eporro, LLC has created strategic partnerships with the Alabama High School Athletic Association (AHSAA) and its Athletic Directors and Coaches Association (AHSADCA). Also on the table, are several college conference partnerships relevant to the AHSAA's student-athletes, such as the Gulf South Conference (GSC) and the Alabama Community College Conference (ACCC), amongst others.
In addition to the Alabama deal and the relationships with college conferences geo-targeted by Alabama, Eporro, LLC is negotiating deals with other states and college conferences from around the country to provide NextSpex.com in the same fashion as they able to do for Alabama.
