The Home of New Ideas in Sport

For over 10 years The Sport Business Summit has been the home of new ideas in sport and plays a key role in driving innovation and championing new talent across the industry. At this year’s Summit the next generation of great and disruptive ideas will be identified and celebrated from the world’s technology startup community, and we’ll be helping bring them to life at the ‘Leaders Sports Tech Startup Competition’ in front of a live audience of up to 400 senior industry executives.


Competition Overview

After the judging process, the ‘Final 5’ will:

The winner will also have access to a series of Sports Tech Accelerator programmes around the world, and be the centre piece of a major sports industry report on sports technology.
