Our research has found there is an industry-wide need for fresh talent to contribute to solving the most pressing social and ecological issues facing sports professionals.
SportsPro’s Hackathon aims to bridge the gap between aspiring professionals by uniting top students from across the globe to compete against one another in a three-day Hackathon.
The Hackathon is centered around the “Triple bottom line” and the students will be challenged to create innovative solutions to drive social, financial, and environmental sustainability in sport.
As the teaching of social and ecological topics is fundamental to the sustainability of our industry and the world, the hackathon gives participating students an opportunity to broaden their knowledge and engage first-hand with the leaders in these areas. Each team will have access to insightful mentors, including leaders from the likes of Intel, FIVB, Sport Ecology Group, and more.
Not only will students be engaging directly with industry mentors, but all participating students have the opportunity to share their voice and concepts with the industry. The winning team will present a keynote session at SportsPro Live sharing their innovative solutions with engaged industry leaders.
