Hey Sports Tech Fans,
Trying something new (yet again).
I have uploaded the my first video for Sports Tech Live to YouTube!
I love experimenting with different content, platforms, distribution models, etc.
The podcast which I ran last year was a fascinating experience and I still have people reaching from the sports tech world out looking to be on the podcast.
So this is a similar experiment to see what the reaction is.
You have to keep trying new things and YouTube is an obvious one at least imo to experiment with.
If you have the time take a look and leave a comment and some feedback as it ultimately is for viewers like you.
It’s a rough and ready video, no fancy editing or process now, just me running through the stories I cover here.
With so many people reaching out over the last few months to be interviewed and to share their story, I think it would be great to couple the news round up with an interview from someone in the sports tech space.
Any other ideas, feedback or suggestions, send them my way! will.martin@startupdigestmail.com
Have a great sporting weekend,
Will
