iSportConnect, the world’s largest Sports Business Network and STWS (“SportsTechWorldSeries”), the world-leading sports technology community and advisory specialist, have today announced a global strategic partnership to pursue global consulting and international trade partnership opportunities to drive “The Future of Sport”.
The global network partnership is game-changing for the future sports innovation and digitalisation of sports for government and mature, fast-growth startups.Founded in 2010, iSportConnect has a network of over 23,000 sports executives and sports rights holders internationally. STWS has a global community network of 53,000 sports technology, practitioners and sports entrepreneurs worldwide. Working together globally, the parties will explore partnership opportunities with governments, cities to create new jobs from the new sports economy, as well as world-class mentoring and global growth programs for Sports, Media and Esports entrepreneurs and maturing scale-ups (Series A and beyond) as they move towards IPO and the complex transition from SME to large company.
Solving challenges – Governments Legacy and Sports Scale-ups
“We see two major gaps around the Future of Sport and Sports Technology economy. First is the lack of support for governments, regions and cities looking to build and develop pathways and how they measure legacy for future jobs, major events, international trade and exports, sports events best practice and ecosystem development programs for the new sports economy. Secondly, there is a major gap helping fast-growth companies – Series A or 30+ staff and larger – becoming world-leaders and expanding globally to reach their maximum potential(especially in a post-covid recovery). Working collaboratively, we believe iSportConnect and STWS as two global leaders can help solving these complex challenges and creating for governments and sports entrepreneurs,” said John Persico, director of STWS.
Sree Varma, Founder of iSportConnect said, “At iSportConnect we always try to be ahead of the curve and with these evolving times which have reinforced the importance of digital and innovation more than ever, we are excited to partner with STWS and support them in their endeavors.”
Announcements will be made soon around up-coming international programs and initiatives.
