Selected startups from the competitions will have the opportunity to be invited to participate in Sportradar’s Acceleradar program, where they will benefit from access to a wide range of Sportradar’s industry-leading products and services, as well as additional coaching and guidance.

“We are really looking forward to working closely with HYPE Sports Innovation and their array of SPIN Accelerator sports tech start-ups,” said Dave Abbott, Senior Vice President of Innovation and Product Integration at Sportradar.

“It is a real privilege to be in a position today, after so much growth and development, to be able to provide our unique resources and industry insights to these companies. I can’t wait to meet so many entrepreneurs from around the globe and to help them blaze a trail in this exciting space”.

“Partnering with Sportradar goes hand-in-hand with our objective to develop a world-class program that addresses the unique needs of sports technology start-ups,” said Amir Raveh, Founder and CEO of HYPE Sports Innovation. “As more SPIN Accelerators open up over the next 3 years, we aim to grow the next generation of startups that will make a real difference in the world, and partnering with the top sports industry institutions and brands dramatically supports this goal.”
