Got a great idea? Try the Sports Technologies Investment Pitching Competition

The Sports Technologies Investment Pitching Competition is focused on driving the commercialisation of Australian-based sports technologies.

The Competition is designed to uncover new sports technologies and assist entrepreneurs to commercialise these ideas, concepts, start-ups and early stage projects. Prizes will be awarded to the two entries with the most commercial potential. Prizes include;

Winner

  • $8,000 cash
  • 12-months mentoring to assist in commercialising their project
  • 1-day Sports Technology Commercialisation Boot-Camp

Runners-up

  • $5,000 cash
  • 1-day Sports Technology Commercialisation Boot-Camp

The competition is part of larger investment pitching competition called the $50,000 I.T. Invention Test which is hosted by ICT Geelong, one of ASTN’s members.

Any sports technology projects will be accepted, regardless of whether they are I.T. based. However, I.T.-based sports technology submissions will be eligible for all other major prizes in the $50,000 I.T. Invention Test.

The best 4 sports entries will present at the Australian Sports Technologies Network Annual Conference on Friday 2nd November.
