Our Story

The vision for N-LITE started in 1998 with our co-founder David Allway during his tenure as a collegiate soccer athlete and researcher with Indiana University and Michigan State University at the Youth Sport Institute. His journey and research led him to creating an algorithm that helped identify Olympic athletes and professional athletes prior to them ever achieving Worldwide accolades. Then he took a detour by selling the intellectual property to and became an advisor to the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). Now, after more than a decade of refinement the algorithm is back available for commercial use, patent pending, and being applied to sports.

With the support of friend, colleague, and U.S. Soccer Hall of Fame inductee Eddie Pope the N-LITE platform is ready to serve the greater good of the game.

Together with their expanded business and software development teams, N-LITE will deliver a comprehensive solution to support the needs of everyone who loves and is a part of the soccer industry to elevate their game to the next level.
