What we're about

This group is brought to you by SportUp (https://www.sportup.be/), the first and only sports-specific (pre-)acceleration program for sports tech startups in Flanders (Belgium), an initiative by Ghent University-Victoris (http://www.victoris.be/), imec.istart (https://www.imec-int.com/en/istart) and Sport Vlaanderen (https://www.sport.vlaanderen/sport-en-innovatie/).

The SportUp Meet events are there to inspire, educate and connect anyone interested in the latest technological innovations, ideas and products in the sports industry. It will have special attention for topics such as startups & scale-ups, entrepreneurship & innovation, and business & marketing.

Via our meetup events, we hope to build an increasing community of people with shared interests who interact regularly to augment the conversation surrounding the growing synergy between sports and technology and its impact on the world. Don´t hesitate to shoot us an e-mail to introduce yourself!
