Barn Door announce Sport Tech Hub as Innovation Partner

28 May, 2018

We are delighted to announce a partnership with Sport Tech Hub – the UK’s first incubator programme dedicated wholly to innovation in early-stage SportTech.

Sport Tech Hub, powered by London Sport and housed in the capital’s House of Sport, is attracting leading start-up businesses focusing on increasing physical activity in the UK through digital innovation in sport, exercise and fitness. Through its bespoke 24-week incubation programme, STH is at the frontier of the sport’s technology sector across the UK and are helping to drive the next phase of sporting innovation.

‘By partnering with Sport Tech Hub, we are not only providing our wealth of athletes access to some of the brightest start-ups in the country; but continuing to find ways that innovative businesses can partner with sports stars to drive rapid exposure, revenue growth and create long term success for both parties’ said Ben Peppi, Head of Sport at Barn Door.

Alex Zurita, London Sport Specialist Advisor for Technology, commented ‘This new partnership continues the forward-thinking approach that has characterised Sport Tech Hub since its launch in 2017. By working closely with Barn Door, we will be helping to address a missing ingredient in the UK’s SportTech ecosystem – a direct connection between sport professionals and viable sport innovation opportunities, which is prevalent internationally but currently under-explored in UK markets’.

The partnership will give the businesses within the incubator and its alumni the unique opportunity to build partnerships, connect with and create lasting relationships with the sports stars within the Barn Door roster.
