- This event has passed.
After a bespoke 24 week incubation programme focused on business, product, investment readiness and physical activity and sport industry knowledge and connections, our start-ups give short pitches to mentors, investors, accelerators, incubators and connections from the wider sport and tech ecosystems in London.
This cohort represents a diverse number of ambitious ideas and products with founders’ backgrounds ranging from dancers, doctors, investment banking and elite athletes to designers, technologists and internet entrepreneurs. As different as they are, they each share the vision of getting more people active through technology and this final event of the programme gives an opportunity to hear about their learnings, milestones, insights from the sector and the chance to network.
