Comcast NBCUniversal launches new sports tech start-up accelerator

Wednesday 15 January 2020 | 13:41 CET | News

Comcast NBCUniversal has launched a new global accelerator for sports technology start-ups called SportsTech.

The project sees a partnership between three Comcast NBCUniversal sports brands - NBC Sports, Sky Sports and Golf Channel - alongside Nascasr and two US Olympic sports organisations - US Ski & Snowboard and USA Swimming. The partnership is also supported by the group's venture capital unit Comcast Ventures.

Each partners will serve on an advisory committee and provide start-ups with direct access to industry relationships, mentors and partnership opportunities. Early start-ups worldwide can now apply for the inaugural class, which will launch in August 2020. 

The new SportsTech accelerator is based at The Battery Atlanta/SunTrust Park, the headquarters of Comcast Cable's central division. This is the third accelerator launched by Comcast NBCUniversal in the last three years after LIFT Labs and The Farm.
