Sport Tech Hub, the London Sport-backed start-up incubator, acts as a launchpad
for early-stage businesses nine countries around the world.
The programme consists of a 24-week immersive programme, which will allow TAGPAY to drive innovation in digital infrastructure for youth sport, benefiting from strategic guidance, expert mentoring and the opportunity to access and engage with London Sport’s network of community physical activity and sport stakeholders.
NATHAN ENO, CEO and Founder of TAGPAY, said:
“We are delighted to have been accepted onto the programme and specifically
to be working with the London Sport team.
“The vision for TAGPAY has always been to help connect coaches, players and
parents by providing a tool that increases participation in sport. We do this by improving and streamlining admin, club management and safeguarding duties of sports clubs, therefore, allowing the club to focus on coaching and generally allowing them to expand their opportunities for people to engage with sport.”
Announcing the new Sport Tech Hub cohort, ALEX ZURITA,
London Sport Specialist Advisor – Technology for Participation, said:
“Too often in the past, technology has been used as a scapegoat for inactivity,
whereas we frequently see the clear potential that great technology innovation has
for supporting people to live more active lives.
“These ten start-ups offer another glimpse of the future for physical
activity & sport here in London, and around the world; a future where, instead of
running from technology, we embrace it for its ability to meet the needs of
a modern consumer lifestyle.”
The programme will once again be supported by a range of global partners, including PwC, legal experts Fieldfisher and leading academic institute Loughborough University London and TAGPAY is thrilled to be apart of this project and working alongside leaders within the sport industry.
