About Clutch

A “clutch” athlete performs well under pressure, in decisive moments of the game. Clutch is on a mission to create virtual training tools for racket sports that help players and coaches realize their full potential. Clutch is also a social platform for players, coaches and fans to learn, engage and inspire. Our training tools are built with cutting edge Artificial Intelligence technology that tracks players’ shots and movements on court. With Clutch, players and coaches get trackable performance analytics and video highlight tools for every match and training session.

We are working with some of the world’s best badminton players and coaches throughout our early product development. We are launching a beta test starting in the fall, which will include thousands of players uploading video through the app.

We are a pre-seed startup with backing from strong partners in the Nordics. Our team is highly ambitious, but also social and fun. Our founding team is based between Copenhagen and Barcelona. We believe in the value of building an agile remote team and that’s why remote is our default. We are looking into establishing satellite offices and access to co-working spaces in select European cities.
