Today, we have the pleasure of interviewing Nyden Kovatchev. He has been an Entrepreneur for 16 years, and the owner of Sport Displays for the past 6 years. Let’s hear his story!
Hi, Please introduce yourself and tell us about what it is that you do.
I am the owner of Sport Displays, www.thesportdisplays.com. I started this company because I had always been a die-hard sports fan. I love sports, all sports.
Can you please tell us more about your journey?
When I was in university, I began collecting my favorite teams’ jerseys, players from all sports. My collection grew to over 35 jerseys! When I moved into my own place, I immediately wanted to turn my house into a fan cave where I could watch sports with my friends and enjoy my sports memorabilia collection. This was when I came up with my invention, the Jersey Mount.
Please tell us about your company.
After looking into prices for display cases which range from $400-$1200 depending on the case and style, I realized that I would never be able to show off my collection of jerseys without being in the poor house. That is when I decided to create my flagship product, the Jersey Mount. My product allows for fans of all ages and sports to easily, professionally, and affordably hang, display or show off their favorite jersey or fan apparel to the wall or ceiling.
I thought two more amazing features of this product were very important when coming up with it was brand or customizing it with my favorite team logo, image, player signature, or anything else!
Also, Jersey Mounts are the only product on the market that can come in any color and be branded!
This product is made by a fan for fans, and I hope you enjoy it in your home or fan cave one day.
What are the strategies that helped you become successful in your journey?
What made my business successful was tradeshows and meeting people throughout North America and the UK. My business was built on tradeshows as I have attended over 125 tradeshows. Through these tradeshows, I was able to improve my business and product by speaking to people. For example, a very nice lady was the reason that I decided to incorporate 3M command strips into the design. She told me that she hated the idea of bulky display cases or nailing/screwing into the wall. That is when she suggested 3m strips, and I have been recommending them ever since. Originally my product came in one size. However, after attending tradeshows, I realized that parents loved my product for hanging their children’s first jersey or game day jersey. Therefore, I created additional sizes to fit smaller jerseys. People that I have spoken to all over the world have been my companies biggest fan, and I am theirs.
