Our Program Partners
We are a global family of industry-focused programs that support early-stage tech founders to rapidly scale their companies.
We provide direct access to an international network of the most relevant mentors, sporting bodies, partners, and investors.
For our Sports & EventTech 2020 cohort we’re looking for startups with innovative technology, products, services or disruptive business models that have solutions or are looking to solve problems for the Sports & Events sectors. This year's focus areas include:
- Fan Engagement
- Media & Sponsorship
- Event promotion and delivery
- Digital fitness
If your startup is passionate about making an impact in the Sports & Events sectors, we'd love to meet you at one of our upcoming FastTrack events.
What is a FastTrack event?
FastTracks are our way of meeting the best startups and giving back to the startup community.
From January to March, we're visiting over 20 cities around the world to meet the best startups through our FastTrack events. These are free informal half day events where we meet the most innovative companies making an impact in the Sports & Events sectors. At the event you will receive feedback from industry experts, mentors, investors, and startup veterans. We'll also expand your local and global network with people who can help accelerate your business.
FastTrack events are also an opportunity for Startupbootcamp to learn more about your company and for you to learn more about Startupbootcamp and the accelerator program.
The FastTracks are free to attend but spaces are limited. Startupbootcamp receives dozens of applications for each FastTrack event and we can only invite 10 startups. We recommend applying early for the best chance of scoring an invitation.
We can't wait to say 'G'day!'
