When we launched Stadia Ventures earlier this year, it was with a vision to become the Sports Innovation Hub. Our goal was to connect the most talented entrepreneurs with the most innovative sports industry leaders while inviting investors who were looking for legitimate investments and returns.
Within our first year, we have proven the power of the hub with our inaugural accelerator cohort. We invested in four of the best established sports startups in N. America.
They are leaders in golf, fishing, personalized trading cards, and motorized skateboarding+snowboarding. They come from Toronto, Wisconsin, St. Louis and New York City. They all have products in the market and are generating revenue.
After guiding the founders through an immersive, 10-week business development boot camp and surrounding them with some of the best sports business talent as mentors, we are now ready to unveil their "accelerated" businesses.
In addition to our cohort's investor pitches, we will have two tremendous panels on Sports Business.
