Inaugural Event - Boston as the next hub for sports business, entrepreneurial and investment growth
On September 25th, we officially launched Boston VC Sports to a packed house of Boston sports executives, entrepreneurs and investors. The stormy weather postponed the Red Sox game, however it did not deter our members from a great night of networking and learning.
Our tremendous panelists discussed in-depth the massive opportunity for Boston as the next hub for true growth in the sports business, entrepreneurship and investment. We covered many topics ranging from sports betting evolution, to investment trends, to mobile and television video consumption, to the momentum of our industry…and we wrapped with some insights coming off the Celtics’ first day of training camp.
Our esteemed panelists: Bob Higgins (Co-Founder & Managing Partner, Causeway Media Partners), Bryant McBride (CEO, Route 2 Digital Ventures), Ezra Kucharz (Chief Business Officer, DraftKings), Michael Zarren (Assistant GM & Team Counsel, Boston Celtics), Ryan Moore (Founding Partner, Accomplice Ventures) and was moderated by Isaiah Kacyvenski - Founder, Will Ventures (who took the helm brilliantly on short notice)
