Yannick Colaco

Co-Founder, FanCode

With over two decades of experience in the sports and media industry, Yannick Colaco co-founded FanCode in March 2019. FanCode is India’s premier sports destination committed to giving fans a highly personalised experience across Sports Content and Commerce.

An avid sports fan himself, Yannick wanted to improve the experience of sports fans, which was fragmented and under-serviced when it came to accessibility to content, commerce and building fan communities. Addressing this, Yannick co-founded FanCode, part of Dream Sports group. FanCode has already streamed more than 15,000 matches across 18 sports, LIVE to over 100 million users. It has partnered with global organisations like FIFA, ICC, NBA and sports teams like Liverpool, Barcelona, Juventus to provide the widest range of sports merchandise to Indian fans.

Earlier, Yannick was in the NBA International Leadership Team and Managing Director of its India business. Where he was instrumental in driving grassroots development of basketball, setting up of a full-fledged NBA Academy, and building partnerships across licensing, content and marketing. He also served as the Chief Operating Officer of Nimbus Sport in the past.
