Our History

Before HBSE was officially formed, Harris and Blitzer led a group for the purchase of the Philadelphia 76ers in 2011. In August 2013, Harris and Blitzer purchased a majority stake in the New Jersey Devils of the NHL, which included the rights to operate the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.

In addition to these marquee assets, HBSE houses a vast portfolio of sports and entertainment properties, including the Delaware Blue Coats (G-League), the Binghamton Devils (AHL), the GRAMMY Museum Experience at the Prudential Center, the mixed-use 76ers Training Complex in Camden, NJ, an NBA 2K League Team (76ers Gaming Club) and New Meta Entertainment, a digital sports and entertainment company, which includes renowned esports organization, Dignitas.

HBSE is also actively engaged in new ventures, including HBSE Ventures (HBSEV), a venture capital business focused on sports technology, entertainment, performance and analytics; Elevate Sports Ventures, a top-tier sports and entertainment consultancy; and the Sixers Innovation Lab, which supports rapidly growing, early-stage companies in the consumer product space and provides industry-leading consulting and investment opportunities to startups with potential.
