Global Sports Week and Le Tremplin are collaborating to create Le Tremplin Invest, which aims to connect international startups and investors. This partnership will bring networking and funding opportunities to startups in order to help them develop innovative and sustainable solutions in the sports industry.
Le Tremplin is the sports innovation platform launched by Paris&Co in 2014 in Paris, France. Le Tremplin has since grown into a dynamic hub which brings together more than 60 sports-related startups, 27 large corporate and institutional partners around mentoring, workshops, conferences and events. Its goal is to help startups grow while instilling innovation into its partners core strategy. Le Tremplin contributes into developing a true culture of open innovation, closely monitoring disruptive changes and new client expectations in the field of sports.
Le Tremplin created Le Tremplin Invest 2 years ago to provide startups in the sports economy with financial support. 15 startups will have a 3 to 5 minute pitch to convince investors to join them in order to develop their solution. Most of the startups were French companies. Thanks to this partnership, Le Tremplin and the Global Sports Week have opened this competition to foreign startups : half companies will be French, and the other half will come from abroad.
