The Sports Technology Awards Winners… Where Are They Now?
Elite Sport and Business Share the Desire for Delivering Excellence… These Brands Did Just That!
Back in 2017, the Sports Technology Awards judges loved NeuLions’ 4k live streaming proposition and deemed the brand the Best Broadcast Innovation winner. Since then, NeuLion was purchased by Endeavor for a reported $250m in May 2018, and merged to form Endeavor Streaming, which services clients including the NBA, UFC, and NFL.
The 2017 award for Best Technology for Managers and Coaches was picked up by ForceDecks, which provides instantaneous feedback on neuromuscular performance and asymmetries. Just two years later, the company was acquired by global leaders in human measurement technologies, VALD Performance for an undisclosed amount.
Opendorse, the sports technology company that maximizes endorsement value for 20,000+ athletes, was shortlisted in 2014 and carried off the Best Partnership trophy in 2016. Since then, the company has raised a total of $11.6m, with the latest being this summer.
Providing innovative workflow automation solution for sports media-right owners, WSC Sports’ work for the NBA took the pairing to victory for the Most Innovative Governing Body or Rights Holder award in 2016. Since then, WSC has raised a total of $39M in funding over three rounds and the work they do gets ever-more impressive.
Certainly, all the brands we’ve mentioned do outstanding work but that’s not all they get right. They match market need with the products they create AND they promote themselves well. Part of that is showcasing their work in an appropriate way to the industry. An entry into The Sports Technology Awards helps you do exactly that.
