VNN brings administrators, athletes, parents, fans, and brands together around high school sports.
TRANSFORM COMMUNITIES BY CELEBRATING SCHOOL SPORTS
In a divisive world, sports unite us. VNN products help local communities rally around their teams by making information and communication about them more accessible to all.
There’s power when people become a part of something bigger than themselves, and with VNN empowering schools to promote their teams and athletes, a community transforms into a better place to be than it would without us.
VNN is headquartered in Grand Rapids, Michigan, with employees all over the US, wherever our customers need them. In the beginning, we were a scrappy tandem of bloggers working the beat, and now, our over 60 employees are trusted by over 1,500 schools nationwide to help manage their programs. We’re still highly influenced by our roots. Content is king, community is important, and sports are awesome.
The idea of UGJ, or use good judgement, gives our team the power to change things and make them better without waiting. At VNN, we recognize and reward people who see a problem and just solve it.
Feats of Strength
If there’s one thing we’ve learned, it’s that VNN’ers love a good physical competitive challenge. In the short time we were at our office on Ionia Street, we’ve seen a pull-up face-off vs. the Jimmy John’s guy (we won), a company-wide slam dunk contest (Ryan won), broomball Christmas party, lunchtime crossfit and ‘should we hire you’ HORSE (we hired them). It’s a lot of fun. Got something good you want to beat us at? Here’s your open invitation. We’ll make the entire staff fair game.
