As is our customs at the end of each year, we bring the entire Seedbiz team together to select the candidate who will receive the Entrepreneur of the Year award. We measure entrepreneurs and their ventures based on parameters we find highly important which consider the milestones achieved compared to the year before, and how the entrepreneur set out to achieve them.

Seedbiz’ Entrepreneur of the Year 2021 award goes to Noam Hachmon, Founder and CEO of Skillset.

Skillset is an online streaming platform dedicated to giving young athletes and sports fans around the world access to affordable, high-quality lessons taught by top leading athletes in their respective fields.

Skillset was founded and is managed by brothers Noam and Shabbi Hachmon who were joined with an investment by Israeli football player Idan Vered. Starting as an athlete from early age, Idan Vered knows firsthand how it is to start your career in youth football clubs, an experience he puts into action at Skillset. Additional partners and team members include President of FC Barcelona, Mr Jean Laporta, who joined early in full faith and attended Skillset’s luxurious launch event in Israel.

One of the biggest contributions to Skillset is the recruitment of Mr Mitch Lowe, Co-Founding Executive at Netflix, who brings incredible knowledge and experience to set Skillset on a strategic path to growth on a global scale.

When we evaluate our candidates for the Entrepreneur of the Year award, we typically look at a wide range of actions the candidate takes with respect to their own venture, and their contributions to humanity.

In 2021, Noam Hachmon created “Mondialito Pesach” a soccer tournament for kids, in which Israeli celebrities participated, and in joint-collaboration with the “Wings of Krembo” – A non-profit organization for youth and children movement with severe disabilities. During the same year Noam brought the Trophée des Champions to Israel.

Noam signed exclusive agreements with key soccer players to debut the platform including Sergio Agüero, Luka Modric, Virgil van Dijk, Giorgio Chiellini, and more.

Lastly, new investors onboard include Luan Krupnik (?) , and Israel Premiere League Goalie Arik Yanko who put their faith in Skillset.
