HYPE UQ SPIN Lab

It was announced last November that HYPE Foundation, the fastest growing community for sports innovation globally and the University of Queensland, were partnering to form Australia’s first sports technology-focused accelerator Hype UQ Spin Lab.

The unique thing about the Hype concept, which was first launched in Spain with football team FC Barcelona, is that all programs align with a major upcoming sporting event at which the pitch their companies to a captive audience of sports industry influencers, investors, and potential partners. Previous events have included the NFL Draft and the World Cup; for the first Australian cohort they will have their demo day as part of a sports innovation event running in parallel to the Commonwealth Games.

There are startups taking part in this first intake. They were selected from 94 applications that were submitted from startups based primarily in Australia and New Zealand, as well as areas across Southeast Asia like India, Singapore, and Hong Kong.
