You spent all day yesterday listening to innovators and game changers, now you have the chance to be a game changer. On Sunday morning, you will have the opportunity to apply the insights from our speakers and panels.
Working in collaboration with the group of people sitting at your table, you will have 20 minutes to come up with an innovative idea that you think will have a meaningful impact on the sporting industry. Your group’s idea will be presented on stage by at least one group member in the format of an elevator pitch (two minutes or less). After all teams have pitched their ideas, your team will have five minutes to discuss and vote for the one pitch which stood out from the rest. Votes will then be tallied and the winner of the $500 grand prize will be announced later that day.
Don’t be afraid to get creative and think outside the box. Draw from your own personal experiences, whatever they may be, whether as a fan, athlete, or coach. Remember your team is competing for $500!
