More than 2,000 people attended the second edition of Sports Summit MX, which was held at the Citibanamex Center in Mexico City on February 26 and 27. Ronaldo, Brazilian team world champion in 1994 and 2002 and current president of Real Valladolid, and Javier Tebas, President of La Liga, were some of the event’s prominent attendees.
As part of the program, a Startup Competition was organized by Sports Summit Mexico and the Global Sports Innovation Center (GSIC) powered by Microsoft. The competition was launched at the end of January with the aim of creating a meeting point before, during and after the Sports Summit for Latin American startups and SMEs that are developing innovative solutions applied for the sports industry. The finalists presented their solutions to the public, media and national and international sports entities during the event in México City on February 27.
Teams pitched projects which were evaluated by a jury of the sports industry professionals, among them, our General Manager Iris Cordoba, and 3 winners were chosen. CamOn was unanimously named the winner of the competition.
