uniqFEED Expands Reach in Sports With SportWorks Partnership
On August 1, the annual Swiss National Day, uniqFEED will extend its geographical reach further still by joining SportWorks at the Maison du Sport International (MSI) in the Olympic Capital, Lausanne.
This new development is an important move strategically for uniqFEED as the organization continues to grow and expand into new sports markets such as baseball and football, and further develops its product to cater for additional sports. A presence in the Olympic Capital will, therefore, be invaluable for facilitating conversations, knowledge transfer, and relationship building with key industry players and influencers.
“Having a presence in Lausanne will be essential for uniqFEED as we continue to expand our technological capabilities beyond racket sports and into new markets,” says Lukas Gysin, CEO and founder of uniqFEED. “The potential capabilities of the technology are huge, and the network at SportWorks is broad and diverse. We look forward to many interesting and valuable conversations with our new colleagues.”
The Lausanne area is home to the headquarters of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), the Court of Arbitration for Sport and 59 International Sports Federations including Fédération Internationale de Basketball (FIBA), Union des Associations Européennes de Football (UEFA), and the International Golf Federation (IGF). On July 23, 1994 Lausanne was also given the title Olympic Capital, as an affirmation of the city’s status as the epicenter of international sport.
uniqFEED joins SportWorks, the only dedicated coworking community for sports business professionals, including sports technology organizations, agencies, and research institutions based in the Maison du Sport, which is home to 23 of Lausanne’s 59 international sports federations.
“SportWorks offers a coworking space and a collaboration platform for sport business professionals and diversity is key to successful collaborations and value exchange, therefore an innovative company like uniqFEED is a valuable addition to the community,” says Tatiana Ghigonetto from SportWorks.
