The LeagueApps team will be out of the office to participate in their semi-annual OTAs. You can read about some of our previous OTAs here.
Though we call it OTAs, other companies like Google, Apple, Facebook, and EA Games have their own brand of team-building activities. Corporate team-building activities are starting to become the norm in the professional world. Even Forbes agrees they are “good for company culture and boosting the bottom line.”
One of the best things that we’ve done consistently at OTAs is have open-ended discussions about improving the company for both its employees and our partners. Everyone is pulled from their respective day job and is focused on one goal: building the future of LeagueApps and youth sports.
We’ve come a long way since our first OTAs. Many of our veterans are quick to remember the first being held for one day in a big conference room. There were about 5 people. This week, 60 employees will be traveling to several different locations around the city.
We’ll even be participating in a company wide hackathon. You can read about our latest hackathon here.
Big thanks ahead of time to our partner Cullen Shaw of PlayNYC, the Brooklyn Nets, and Cogent of New York for hosting us over the next few days. Also want to thank the investors and speakers that will be integral in shaping the second half of LeagueApps 2017: Joe Gangone, David Arcara, Jordan Solomon, Nnamdi Okike, Scott Birnbaum, Mike Jacobs, and Abby Levy.
Finally, we’re most excited about the opportunity to be hosting some of our partners for a special town hall event held at the Brooklyn Nets practice facility. Representatives from Sports Force Parks, Sportika Hoop Nation, Basketball City, Connecticut Dodgers, Manhattan Kickers, and NYC Footy will be sharing some knowledge and best practices around delivering amazing sports experiences to their customers.
Even though we will be out of the office, we will still have the necessary support for our partners. If you have an issue, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
