The Global Sports Symposium is the first annual student-run conference presented by the team behind the Ivy Sports Symposium (Sports Symposium, Inc.). Established in 2006, Sports Symposium, Inc. is a student-run, non-profit organization that sets the standard for sports business education.
For the past eight years the Symposium has rotated among Ivy League campuses in the United States and has featured more than 300 unique speakers from around the world representing all facets of the business of sport. This will be the first year that the Symposium is held outside of the United States, taking place at Emirates Stadium in London on May 15th, 2014.
Sports Techie, Best of luck to those of you who enter to win or simply want the exposure and experience of going through the initial GSS Pitch Competition process. My free advise to the GSS for next year is to create a virtual pitch for a select few who cannot afford to fly to Europe and stay in a UK hotel.
I am not sure whether any NDA’s are signed but do look into this before entering too many details about your hard-earned and well thought out business plans to shake up the sports tech Industry with your new System, Solution or App. I am sure the GSS Ivy League principles are standup people but giving away your sports technology trade secrets is a serious commitment for any founder or executive management team to make.
Contact [email protected] with any GSS and Start Up Pitch Competition questions.
