Leading Innovation

The Leaders Performance Institute is proud to be positioned at the forefront of the development of technology in sport performance and beyond. The Innovation Lab has been created to provide a platform to connect creative new companies and their cutting-edge technologies with the performance decision makers who can drive them forward. 

This unique opportunity will offer 15 successful brands the chance to engage with Formula E to pitch their product, to solve a performance challenge.

“I’ve worked in sport a long time and been aware of Leaders as the premium sporting platform. Being taken seriously at Leaders means being taken seriously everywhere. That was a real key driver for us to want to enter. I’m not a great fan of awards generally, but I think an award from Leaders is more powerful than anything else.” – Andy Etches, Co-Founder, MiHiepa
