OUR VISION

To Impact people’s life through the power of Sports & Innovation.

HOW WE SEE THE WORLD

In 1903, the Wright brothers managed to fly a plane a distance of 39 yards, and today planes fly 12,000 km at an altitude of 30,000 feet. We believe that the field of sports is expected to change just as significantly in the next 5 to 10 years. Ranging from the experience of buying a ticket to the fans’ experience in the stadium and at home – everything will be different, both on and off the field. When we started the HYPE Sports Innovation, we wanted to build more than a sports innovation platform. We saw ourselves doing something greater than building a community that engages startups and corporations. We believe that sports and innovation are the best ways to create a bigger impact in the world that appears to be more divided and alienated than ever.
