Educated the sports world by bringing together a collaborative community of sports tech innovators and influencers.

Who: Troy Ruediger, Creator of Starters

The Story: Ruediger and his team have built a self-organizing and self-sustaining community, where everyone contributes and benefits from thought-provoking conversations, networking opportunities and staying current on top trends in the sports tech industry.

Almost immediately after its launch, the Starters community was recognized as one of the top 97 Slack communities for entrepreneurs by Inc.com. This was due in large part to Ruediger’s creativity while delivering the most exciting and relevant sports, tech and influencer news to the community.

“The sports industry is outdated, there are too many possibilities with technology and innovation in the world of sports, and too many dinosaurs calling the shots. No longer will this be the case. Abraham Lincoln said the best way to predict the future is to create it. That’s what we are doing! Technology first, in everything we do. We aim to harness the power of collaboration, community and technology to shape the future of sports.” – Troy Ruediger
