Why a Sport-specific Startup Competition?

The professional sport marketing and media business environment is based on consolidated models and players, including Sport Federations and Leagues, Broadcasters, Marketing Agencies, Brands and Service Companies.

Innovation often comes from thinking outside the box and this initiative can bring great inspiration to the sports industry. A lot of young entrepreneurs are disrupting the way people watch, operate, engage and play sports, and it’s crucial for the long-term success of sport companies to learn and understand about disruptions – before they affect them!
