Event description
Slingshot Sports connects athletes with the world of Startups - a 2-day workshop

About this Event

Slingshot Sports would like to invite you to experience the first session of its uniquely designed program Athletes life 2.0: for athletes to gain the knowledge, skills, connections and support to have a post-retirement career in the Startup industry.

Slingshot Sports connects athletes with the Startup world. Join a cohort of fellow athletes from a variety of professional and Olympic sports to this day and a half workshop on exploring the fundamentals of the Startup industry.

The Startup industry is driving the future jobs growth both here and globally and the program has been designed to give all participants a comprehensive understanding of this exciting and dynamic ecosystem.

Our research shows that there is a direct correlation between professional athletes’ psychological characteristics and successful entrepreneurial behaviour. As a result, we believe that Startups could offer a suitable second career choice for professional athletes.

We have deliberately constructed the event to be dynamic and exciting and keep participants engaged and energised. The content is really easy to digest and aimed specifically at this target audience.

The event will be hosted by Craig Lambert, CEO and Founder of Slingshot.
