Over the last few months the sports tech world has been moving at an ever increasing pace…and we have been working with some great new innovations that are heading your way!
As we have been developing our relationships with a variety of partners we have become clearer about what this site and our services are really about.
Increasingly we are being asked by new start-ups how they can talk to the established world of sport, NGBs, clubs etc. They believe their products will be attractive and there is likely to be some mutual benefit. Rarely is the start up asking for cash from the NGB – but they want a relationship.
On the other hand a few NGBs, sports bodies, associations and friends are looking to make their sport fit in this new digital age and look jealously across at Strava, Map my Run, Up, Apple watch health apps and wonder if there is a killer app, website or new gadget that will bring them into the 21st century. Sadly they find it hard to get the right people in the same room at the same time. That is where we come in….
We are working with London Sport to bring some of these great ideas to life. We are hoping to bring the two sectors closer together. So watch this space for some great projects to be announced after the summer.
At the same tome we continue to work with Openplay and have been delighted to be introduced to raceful.ly We are very excited by what we have seen and are really keen to support some British start-ups!
To back up the work we are partnering with the world renowned Loughborough University – specifically the Physical Activity & Public Health Research Group where we can offer advice and world leading research capabilities and experience.
We will be continually tweeting and forwarding the new tech ideas we see from across the sport & physical activity community via @sport_innovatn so please follow us.
