OZ Sports – previously known simply as Oz – is one of the seven companies chosen to participate in the first edition of Nordic Scalers. Nordic Scalers is a six month scaling program that connects chosen startups to mentors to help them scale in the US. Icelandic Startups is the local partner for Nordic Scalers.

“The mentors have scaled companies themselves. We look forward for our close cooperation with them as we enhance our go-to-market strategy for the US. It is a big asset to even increase our team of talents, by the good addition of the experienced founders of this program,” says Kari Steinn Karlsson, CFO at OZ.

OZ Sports describes itself as an AI-based production system broadcasting live experiences with local sports teams. OZ also helps rights holders of sports reaching fans across the world and untapped audiences. The company previously launched a video platform for creatives, but has since changed direction to focus on the sports sector.
