Investment pitch opportunities announced for tech start-ups focussed on developing physical activity and sport

Building on London Sport's aim to support the development of fit-tech and sport-tech innovation and to help make London the centre of the global fit-tech eco-system, we are pleased to announce two exciting opportunities for tech start-ups to pitch for investment. We are looking to identify exciting start-ups that are seeking new and substantial private investment to enable scale, growth and development of their products.


The Opportunities

Opportunity 1 - May 2017, London - in association with Barclays
London Sport and Barclays are looking for technology-focussed start-ups with a passion for innovation, who can bring creative ideas to physical activity and sport, to connect with a network of high net worth individuals and Barclays' team of experts in tech accelerator and incubator programmes

The Application Process
Application by online application form

How will successful companies be chosen?
We are looking for talented founders with a team capable of designing the full product solution. The team should be rounded out across technical and core business skills. Founders should hold at least 10% equity in the company. We are unlikely to select single founder companies for this opportunity.

Any start-up which has completed Series A or equivalent funding will need to demonstrate a high level of month-on-month growth.


Opportunity 2 - March 2017, Qatar-UK Business & Investment Forum
London Sport is looking for technology-focussed start-ups or scale-ups with a passion for innovation and an international outlook, who are ready to pitch to global investment networks on tech for physical activity and sport. This opportunity is in partnership with a foreign government delegation and associated investment-ready audience. 

The Application Process
Application by online application form. We are looking for information on the team, the problem your product solves, market opportunity, details of your roadmap, and how you intend to exercise your plans. We will draw up a shortlist of companies from which our partners will choose the final companies to pitch for investment. Please note that successful companies will need to cover their own costs of attendance and pithing at the event.
