Apply now for the FanXP Innovation Challenge

The biggest basketball startup competition in the world is inviting entries now. With the aim of offering fans the best experience possible, the FanXP Innovation Challenge – staged in collaboration with N3XT Sports – challenges the latest generation of tech startups to join the sports fan revolution with creative and unique ideas.

A vastly experienced six-person jury has been selected to ensure expertise and insight in the judging of the entries, which can be submitted until 30 April at

The jury includes: Mathieu Lacome (Head of Research and Innovation at Paris Saint-Germain); Didac Lee (Galdana Ventures Co-Founder and former Board Member and Head of Digital at FC Barcelona); Jasmine Robinson (General Partner at Causeway Media Operations); Susanne Timosci (Global Lead Key Account at Bundesliga); Sree Varma (iSportconnect Founder & CEO); and Luis Vicente (Group CEO at Eleven Sports).

Lacome believes the event will be beneficial for everybody involved, saying:

“The FanXP participation will be a massive boost for the startups, providing visibility, introduction to the relevant stakeholders, and insights about the needs and challenges of the clubs.”

Timosci echoed that view, adding:

“Startup competitions such as this one are a great opportunity for startups to get exposure, get closer to the sports ecosystem and be in direct contact with the decision makers.”

ThinkSport is supporting the initiative and encourages any startup with a minimum viable product to apply to take part. All applicants will receive free registration to attend the FanXP Virtual Pitch Competition.
