Big data, connected objects and clothing, performance enhancement tools, e-sports, sports for the disabled, the media, and social networks: there are so many things nowadays that encourage simultaneous advances in sport and innovation. Therefore, Paris&Co have developed the first incubator in the world to focus on innovation in sport.
This new sports innovation platform aims to make the most of the opportunities created by the fast-changing sports sector in Paris, and to create a culture of innovation in this strategic industry. Through the incubator, we intend to build links between startups and the sports industry, and to develop technological solutions to sports-related issues. For example, we aim to make sports more accessible to all those living in highly urbanised areas.
After a rigorous selection process involving over one hundred applicants, we have chosen 17 startups for Le Tremplin incubator. We look forward to welcoming them into our temporary premises until summer 2016, when they will move permanently to the Jean Bouin stadium. They will receive high-quality support to develop their innovative solutions and products, consolidate their business model and grow their business.
By setting up incubation, training, testing and monitoring facilities, the sports innovation platform aims to change the face of sport going forward and to increase the international attractiveness of Paris.
