WHAT WE DO
By supporting startups with access to experienced mentors, and by connecting them with essential resources to help validate and grow, we are helping to build an ecosystem that can allow the sportstech industry to thrive in Ireland.

SPORTSTECH IRELAND TEAM
SportsTech Ireland is a not-for-profit initiative committed to the development of the sports technology industry in Ireland. SportsTech Ireland launched in 2017 with the aim of championing a new industry for Ireland in the field of sports innovation and technology. Gráinne Barry, Martina Skelly, and Emily Ross launched SportsTech Ireland as a way to give back to their locality, the home that they loved in Ireland’s midwest. With Limerick being home to Munster Rugby and Thomond Park, it was already positioned as a great starting point for an initiative like SportsTech Ireland. Our purpose is to represent and drive growth in the industry in Ireland through deep domain expertise, a national and international network and a focus on innovation at the intersection of technology and sport.
