Hey Sports Tech Fans,
Andrew Hippert from Techstars Sports Tech Indy reached out to invite members of this amazing community to their latest demo day.
This is the third cohort to come through Techstars Sports Tech Indy and is one of the main reasons this newsletter even exists.
There are two Irish companies in this year’s batch which is amazing to see so I will certainly be tuning in to see them pitch.
There are in-person tickets and virtual tickets available for the 2nd of September and the Eventbrite link is below.
Earlier this summer the Global Design Challenge for sports was held, which I shared with you all back in May.
