SportUp Meet #2: inspiration and Sportstech Round Tables

10th Jul 2019

You've already heard the saying 'Your net worth is your network', right?

On December 3rd we celebrated the wrap-up of our first SportUp year with another Sportup Meet event. We switched up the concept to cater more people to their needs and wants, and thus crafted an event where knowledge got shared, inspirational stories were shared and startups got challenged!

The agenda looked like this:

For the first time, we added an inspirational talk, and we invited one of our finest Paralympic Belgian athletes, Peter Genyn. Who knew that wheelchair racing was such a technical endeavor...

Season 2 of the Boost program delivered 3 graduates who presented at our Meet: Muscle Talent Scan, Opteamal and Pitch Perfect, followed by one of the Start program participants LevelUp Sports.

And just like last time, we held a pitch contest between the three Boost participants. The public voted and chose as their winner...

Muscle Talent Scan!

Peter Genyn showed us the ins and outs of wheelchair racing. At every elite level of sports, the smallest details matter, and in a sport where you rely hugely on your tech - which in Peter's case as an extension of his body - the impact of these details is enormous.

And as always we had drinks, bites and a moment to connect with our fellow sports tech enthousiasts.
