Open Letter from iSportconnect Founder and CEO, Sree Varma
Dear iSportconnect members,
iSportconnect turns two years old today
I launched iSportconnect two years ago with the aim of connecting everyone within the sports business. As we celebrate our second birthday, I would like to express my delight at the progress we have made so far and thank you for your support in making this a successful community.
I launched iSportconnect because throughout my sports business career I have always thought the industry should have a one-stop platform for all the needs of industry professionals - connecting with each other, sharing ideas, presenting opportunities and keeping up-to-date with news and trends. At the time I was a contractor for Sport+ Markt and CEO of Glitzier Sports Consultancy and I kept looking for one comprehensive resource for the sports business information I needed on a daily basis for my work. I wanted to read sports business news, I needed up to date information on new business opportunities as well as information about the companies and individuals that I was or wanted to deal with. I spoke to my business associates and it became obvious that a one stop shop for up to date news, business networking leads, jobs and market opportunities was sought after but missing. I consequently spent a year doing background research and product development before the iSportconnect website went live on the 25th of June 2010. Since I was working full-time at my other positions it started out as a moonlight kind of operation. It has been fantastic seeing it grow out of my home via a café with editorial volunteers to offices in Mayfair and now in Battersea.
The aim was to provide a platform that is complete, interesting and useful to sports business professionals. To do so, we have interviewed high-profile figures, published columns by industry experts and discussions about important issues, listed many jobs and marketplace opportunities and held successful Directors’ Club events.
We have thoroughly enjoyed connecting people over the last two years and hope that you will continue to find the site interesting and informative.
We always enjoy hearing from our members. If you have any suggestions or comments about the site, please send them to
Thank you for your support
