SeaTurtle Sports is more than the creators of beautifully-crafted, addictive games. Our company is a catalyst to making memories, whether it’s a great beach vacation or endless hours of backyard fun.
Our purpose is simple:
We make highly social games that help you disconnect from our digital world and reconnect with those most important to you – friends and family. Whenever and wherever you escape. Whether it’s the sand beneath your feet, rhythm of the waves, warmth of the sun, melody of laughter filling the air, or conversation between friends that moves you, our games are designed to elevate your next weekend getaway, tailgating event, backyard barbecue, camp out, or afternoon at the park.
Fun by design
Our game designs are innovative, fun, portable and built to go wherever life takes you. Our colors are playful yet laidback, like the spirit of a coastal beach town. Inspirations stem from guavas (our greens), bonfires (our fiery oranges), the feathers of a Toucan bird (our airy yellows), and the emerald blue ocean on a clear summer day (our beachy blues).
SeaTurtle Sports games can’t be played alone. They are games of camaraderie that bring people together. So simple and universal they break down language, cultural and age barriers. Our games have been spotted all over the world. They require no game clock. There are no umpires or judges. No hard and fast rules. Just a few guidelines to keep the games moving.
At SeaTurtle Sports, we play hard but we also work hard to foster a culture of giving back. Whether sponsoring entrepreneurs globally through a micro-funding platform, donating our games to American troops abroad, or mentoring college interns, we continually do our best to positively impact as many lives as possible. We live, create, and breathe this culture. Our brand itself pays homage to a beautiful and endangered beach and ocean inhabitant – the sea turtle. We hope we can inspire you to join us in protecting these beautiful creatures for future generations while creating lifelong memories along the way.
To give back and help small startups across the world gain traction, SeaTurtle Sports donates a portion of our revenue to aspiring entrepreneurs through Kiva.com. Kiva is a non-profit microfinance organization that allows contributors to loan money to a wide variety of people and businesses around the world to help alleviate poverty. Through our contributions, we at SeaTurtle Sports are spreading the spirit of entrepreneurship and helping individuals follow their dreams. See below to check out the stories of those we helped through Kiva.
As an example of one of our current Kiva donations, we chose Akenese, based out of Samoa. Akenese is a 32-year-old woman with 7 children. She runs a small bakery in her community to earn a living.
Akenese needs a loan to buy bags of flour, sugar, yeast, cooking oil, baking trays, icing sugar, butter, and a large stove. She plans to use her business profits to pay for her family's weekly expenses.
You can learn more about Akenese and follow her through her Kiva profile: https://www.kiva.org/lend/1073069
The Jekyll Island Foundation
In Summer 2016, SeaTurtle Sports partnered with The Jekyll Island Foundation. The Foundation was established in 1999 to assist with the conservation, education, and historic preservation efforts of Jekyll Island’s unique character. Their support created The Georgia Sea Turtle Center (GSTC) as a primary conservation program dedicated to increasing awareness through sea turtle education, rehabilitation, and research programs. The GSTC empowers individuals to act locally, regionally, and globally to protect the environment.
SeaTurtle Sports donated its sea turtle branded polos and spiker beverage holders to Jekyll Island Foundation’s retail store. All proceeds from the purchase of these items go directly to The Jekyll Island Foundation to support its efforts in rehabilitating sea turtles.
In addition to donating through Kiva, we’re also giving back closer to home through student internships and class projects. According to a survey by the Business and Professional Women’s (BPW) Foundation, Gen-Y will form 75% of the workforce by 2025. “Owner” is the fifth most popular job title for Gen-Y because they are an entrepreneurial generation.
We recruit interns in New Orleans through our ties to Tulane University and have had great experiences with both undergraduate and MBA students. We’ve also opened up our company for case study analysis by students of the Harvard School of Business MBA program and Tulane's Freeman School of Business MBA program.
Of course it’s really not a hard sell. What's not to like about inventing new outdoor games to play during down time – and a pretty cool, passionate team to work with? If you would like to be considered for an internship position or would like to use SeaTurtle Sports for a university class project, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Games for Troops
Games for Troops (www.gamesfortroops.org) is an exceptional non-profit organization that accepts games of any kind and delivers them safely to our troops stationed abroad.
For our men and women serving overseas, mixed with the intensity of modern warfare are times of extreme boredom and loneliness. And we couldn’t think of a better partner than Games for Troops to help our soldiers pass those times and remind them that they are never forgotten.
We support Games for Troops by donating SeaTurtle Sports’ game sets, which are placed in gift packages to be sent out for the holiday season or when a soldier or his/her family requests a game on the soldier’s behalf. We also want to encourage our SeaTurtle Sports’ fans to donate any new or used games to show our gratitude and bring a little bit of ‘home’ to our troops serving their country, so far away.
Special Olympics Cabarrus County (NC)
