The Alliance will combine Stadia’s expertise, relationships and ecosystem in North America with Le Tremplin’s expertise, relationships and ecosystem in Europe. Together, they will focus on and explore commercialization opportunities for sports and esports startups between North America and Europe; expansion of their collective networks; and introductions to relevant corporate sponsors to drive revenue.
While Stadia has created a global ecosystem for sports innovation growth by leveraging their core strengths: industry expertise, network, and education, Le Tremplin by Paris&Co has focused on accelerating the development of the sports ecosystem in France and across Europe. This has since grown into a dynamic hub which brings together more than 170 sports-related start-ups with close to 30 large corporate and institutional partners around mentoring, workshops, conferences and events.
“We are delighted to be working with Pierre, Charles and the team at Le Tremplin by Paris&Co through this Alliance. They are leading the way in France and across Europe with their experience, expertise, relationships and work ethic which aligns with our own approach and mentality. We value the chance to continually drive opportunities for our portfolio companies into new markets and also look to develop new opportunities for us to evolve and grow.” declares Alex Chalmers, Director of Corporate Partnerships @ Stadia.
“As the leading sports innovation hub in the US and in Europe respectively, this alliance between Stadia Venture and Le Tremplin by Paris&Co will add a significant value for our portfolio companies and our partners. Throughout our various exchanges over the past year with Alex and Bill, we are convinced that Stadia has some of the most credible expertise, network and people in the US market.” declares Pierre Verstraete, Head of incubation at Le Tremplin by Paris&Co.
