Startups & Investment | Hashtag Sports 2018

Startups Investment

Show me the money. With investors betting hard on digital’s ability to disrupt, more money than ever is being funneled into the sports economy. Startups, both big and small, are getting their game on and catching the eye of major venture capital funds looking to plant seeds (and seed rounds) in a sexy sector, and as concerns about risks on the field increase in parallel with the attractiveness of returns off the field, athletes and sports personalities are putting less money in their piggy banks and more money into potential unicorns. Join the Startups & Investment track at HS18 for a deep dive into the state of entrepreneurship and investment in sports.
