13:30 Welcome by Arno Hermans (founder Sport eXperience)
ArnoHis love for sports comes down to soccer and volleyball. As captain of the regional volleyball team, they became the Dutch champion in 1996. As an engineer, he got the opportunity to discover different technologies in different sectors, and be involved in multiple sectors as well as setting up a Sports Engineering department. During the years, he grew up with the energy of Startups. When making that combination; sports, technology and Startups, there’s an accelerator born. By interviewing 100 stakeholders in 2015, he got the confirmation that The Netherlands was ready for a Sports Accelerator. And Sport eXperience is the result.
