Sportsfluent: in the semi-finals of the Babson Global Student Challenge
published on 24.02.21
The Sportsfluent project will represent TBS in the semi-finals of the Babson Collaborative Global Student Challenge.
Today was the presentation of the five projects of the B3 Entrepreneurship (Digital & Social) Track that competed to represent TBS. In this final presentation, the students had the opportunity to introduce their projects professionally in front of the invited jury and their teachers, coaches, and mentors who have helped them along the way. In the end, the chosen initiative was Sportsfluent.
The Sportsfluent team started their presentation by telling the story of Lionel Messi, a very talented boy with a growth hormone deficiency. Luckily, a club believed in him and he was able to undergo expensive treatment. Eventually, he became the best player in the world. With this story, Anita and Rakel wanted to explain that many athletes like him need support.
Sportsfluent is a digital platform to connect athletes with sponsors. Athletes can register on the website and create their profiles. During the presentation, the team showed how the app works and how profiles are created. Besides, anyone can become a sponsor and contribute, even with amounts as small as €5.
