GoDaddy has announced it has been named as the official website builder partner of the Australian Olympic team for the Tokyo 2020 Games.
GoDaddy has a history of supporting entrepreneurs and small business owners in Australia.
Many Australian Olympic athletes are small business owners themselves, running businesses and side hustle to help support the pursuit of their sporting dreams. The Australian Olympic team for Tokyo includes small business owners across diverse fields, from property and physiotherapy to retail and even bakers.
In collaboration with the Australian Olympic Committee (AOC), GoDaddy will help support Australia’s Olympic athletes as they bring their side hustle or business ideas to life.
GoDaddy will provide them with products such as websites and marketing with its integrated suite of tools and services to help them get their business online.
As part of the partnership’s aim to inspire Aussie entrepreneurs, GoDaddy will soon announce its Tokyo 2020 athlete ambassador.
Tamara Oppen, managing director of GoDaddy Australia, said: “We’re very proud to support the Australian Olympic team.
“Many of team Australia’s athletes in Tokyo are small business owners, and we’re delighted to support them in both their entrepreneurial and sporting dreams.
“Small businesses owners and athletes are united by their resilience, hard work and willingness to take a leap in the pursuit of something extraordinary. They’re phenomenal role models for aspiring Australian sports stars and entrepreneurs alike.”
Matt Carroll, chief executive of the AOC, said: “We’re delighted to welcome GoDaddy to the Australian Olympic family for the Tokyo 2020 Games.
“Many Australian Olympic athletes are already starting and running businesses to help support themselves, both now and for their post-athletics futures.
“Our partnership with GoDaddy is a crucial part of our mission to empower our athletes for both their Tokyo 2020 dreams and for their longer-term entrepreneurial goals, too.”
