5 New start-ups within the Sport Tech Hub Community

Our Sport Tech Hub community is an innovative group of tech companies that aim to increase physical activity and participation in fun and sustainable ways. 

We are always growing and bringing in new products to our community, and we are excited to share with you 5 new start-ups we have welcomed this month.

Step Tribe

StepTribe gets people active with family and friends using virtual walking challenges to play our part in creating active nations around the world. You can create your challenge to and from anywhere in the world! Then create your Tribe who will complete the challenge virtually together with you. Each challenge can be sponsored to raise money for great charities.

We aim to change the world together. One step at a time.
