SportsNest is a new venture started by Bangalore based entrepreneurs to sell sports equipment online. The site chains the need of a sports equipment portal which can serve all kind of buyers by providing all popular and hard to find sports goods. Embitel got involved from the very beginning of the venture planning to help the ex-sportspersons, the emerging entrepreneurs with the right technology support and consulting to reach their pre-set goals.
SportsNest currently has over 25 categories for men, women and children that include clothing, footwear, fitness and adventure equipment.
