THE SPORTS INNOVATION CHALLENGE

ABOUT THIS COMPETITION

The Sports Innovation Challenge is an opportunity for students and recent graduates from all degree subjects to develop an innovative idea for a sports product, service and/or technology. 45 people or teams with the best ideas received will be invited to an invitation-only “Earn & Learn” event in Stirling on the 13th of April, where attendees will be paid an entrepreneur’s wage and learn from experts how to turn their idea into a reality. Ten Finalists will then pitch their idea to judges from organisations such as Adidas and MyProtein.

Five winners will each receive £4,000 cash to spend on developing their idea, a one year incubation package in The Sport Hive (Scotland and the UK’s first sports incubator), £2,000 worth of complimentary services from our partners across Scotland and access to a range of sports industry mentors and experts.
