January 22, 2019

Ryerson University and Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment are jointly sponsoring several sports technology startups, reports the Canadian Press. The Future of Sport Lab Incubator will provide qualifying start-ups with four months of guidance, access to resources at the university, and potential opportunities with MLSE teams and venues. “We are going to help them expand out into the larger, global, North American sports and entertainment ecosystem,” said Humza Teherany, MLSE’s Chief Technology and Digital Officer. “We have relationships with all the other teams and all the other leagues, all the way into e-sports so we want to help those Canadian entrepreneurs grow and feed some of that talent here in Toronto.” Windsor Star(CP)
