Sports Tech Live
All your Sports Tech news in one place, covering topics like AR/VR, Data Analytics, eSports, Live Streaming, Sports Betting, Wearables, etc.
Hey Sports Tech Fans,
Slightly different one this week.
A number of people have reached out to me in recent weeks and some have asked to share their sports tech related news with you.
I have always wanted to include a community section in the newsletter, but it’s extremely time consuming if I have to find stories from the community myself.
So if you have something to share then please reach out and I will happily share it with the 700+ members of the community.
The community is filled with people people hyper-focused on sports tech and sports business.
To give you a sense of the types of members, they include people from sports teams, sports leagues, federations, venture capitalists, angels, esports and gaming executives, sports media, politicians, startups, Fortune 500 companies and on and on.
I wanted to share two of those with you this week.
Joe reached out from Esportudo which is a sports media company focused on delivering the best content for Latino fans. They went through the Techstars Sports Tech Accelerator in Indianapolis this past year.
Tomer from SportsTech Nation reached out as he is part of the team putting on a virtual Sports tech conference that is typically held in person in Israel. The event will run December 7th to 9th and tickets are free.
Check out the links below and please send me an email if you would like a similar shout out!
Have a great sporting weekend,
