leAD - legacy of Adi Dassler - is a Berlin based sports entrepreneurship platform that helps fund and nurture remarkable sports startups. It was initiated by the grandchildren of Adi Dassler together with a unique group of shareholders who are experts in the fields of venture capital, business, sports business and tech. leAD's accelerator program targets seed stage companies with innovative products, services and business models in or applicable to the realm of sports. This next-generation accelerator model creates an unprecedented ecosystem for sports technology value-creation through tightly aligned support for entrepreneurs and a linked fund that will capture value from the accelerator’s leading companies.
Together with Nathalie we will discuss what the world of sport will look like in the future and how technology affects the way sport is played, managed and consumed. Nathalie can share her experiences working in the SportsTech ecosystem and what innovative startups and founding teams she has met.
