The Home of New Ideas in Sport

For the last 11 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 the most ground-breaking startups from around the world pitch against each other to be crowned champions in our 3rd edition of the Leaders Tech Startup Competition. This year, we’ve transformed the format as we introduce live voting giving YOU the chance to decide the winners.
