Hey Sports Tech Fans,
Very quick one this week as we enter the busy festive period.
I am looking forward to 2021 and I think it would be amazing to democratise this platform.
Looking through the subscriber list, I can see a lot of very interesting people and I would love to open up this platform to get their insight and knowledge and be able to share it with the rest of the community.
This is not a sell your wares opportunity (although I am happy to share those with the community at any time, just send me an email with a link to some news).
What I am looking to do is to allow people to contribute to the weekly pieces that I publish here for the 700+ sports tech fans.
It’s not a massive following but it is hyper-focused on sports tech.
If you want to write a blog, create a video, offer your opinion on a Zoom call or as an audio recording, please do get it touch.
Just send me an email at will.martin@startupdigestmail.com
Have a great sporting weekend,
Will
