Recently released, the latest book by SporTech & Roland Berger entitled “La SporTech en France, une filière dans les starting-blocks” (SporTech in France, a sector in the starting blocks) includes Sportiw among the innovative startups!

What is the French SporTech?

In France, the SporTech market represents about 2 billion euros. Created in 2019 by about 50 startups in order to make this booming sports ecosystem shine, SporTech now brings together the “biggest” sports startups in France. Since then, a report is published every year, taking stock of the most important and innovative startups in the world of sports.

The main themes addressed in the SporTech FR 2022 study are innovation in sports and the evolution of sports practices. Yes, the health crisis has changed the habits of companies and consumers alike. An all-out adaptation had to be put in place to allow sportsmen and women to continue to practice their sport during the various confinements, or even to encourage their favorite teams outside the stadiums. 

The latest SporTech FR study highlights 3 main themes: the latest technological innovations in the field of sport, the state of play of the practice & new modes of sport consumption in the world and finally a panorama of start-ups that develop innovative solutions, as is the case of Sportiw.
