Sport Tech Hub pitching event at Loughborough University London.  

Last month, members of our Sport Tech Hub community joined forces with Loughborough University London, to pitch to their Sport Business and Innovation MSc students. 

Univarsity, TeamSportz and Force for Good pitched to a cohort of masters students. This collaboration worked to teach students about the latest sports tech, innovation, and product development. 

Not only this, but the event helped our ventures get feedback on their product, an opportunity to practice their pitch, and potentially find their next consumer.
