Urū Insights

What is Sports Tech?

We look at sports tech as a large category as the entire sports ecosystem covers wide open areas, including athlete and player performance, fan and player engagement, team and coach success, and business. But many focus areas relate closely to video and engagement, including media entertainment, sports venue and event innovations, fantasy sports, sports betting, and esports.

Athletes in Sports Tech Startups

Athletes often underestimate the skills and abilities they can bring if they decide to start their businesses. The Sports Tech industry can be a familiar starting point with the tech solutions being developed to solve the problems they’ve experienced during their playing careers and the need for audience growth.
