It’s an exciting time to be a sportstech founder, and an equally exciting time to invest in sport.
Since 2014, more than $12.5 billion has been invested in sportstech companies, with the US and China leading the way in terms of large capital investments. A recent report from SportsTechX shows that this investment has led to 25 IPO’s, a further 23 exits, and 22 official unicorns. This is a staggering return for an industry that has traditionally been light in investment.
