Hey Sports Tech Fans,
It’s been another busy week of deals in terms of fund raises, acquisitions and mergers. Check them out below.
This week there has been a slew of startup and innovation competitions launched.
Last week we announced that Techstars will be running a sports tech accelerator in Minnesota and this week we have several more interesting initiatives launched.
BT Sports will be hosting an innovation challenge, as will FIFA and Twitch launched its Sports content accelerator.
As you can see from all of the deals we have covered in 2021, there is a huge appetite for sports tech innovation so its no surprise to see big names in the sports world running their own innovation challenges to foster new technology and solutions to problems the sporting world is facing.
Comcast Sports Tech will be hosting their demo day on the 26th of May, you can register for free to see their startups pitching. I have included their Tweet below which contains the Eventbrite link to register for the event or by following this link:
Have a great sporting weekend,
