The Anella Olímpica Incubator
The Estadi Olímpic Lluís Companys is in the final stages of setting up the city's first sports and technology project incubator. From the epicentre of the Anella Olímpica, the project aims to promote and support the creation of innovative companies in the field of sport, foster their growth and facilitate their positioning in the city's business community.
The incubator is expected to house up to 14 start-ups related to the world of sport, innovation and technology. It is also expected to be able to count on the support of large, medium and small companies.
The companies and entrepreneurs that join the incubator will have access to support and acceleration programmes that will be carried out with strategic partners from the sports and new technologies sector. In addition, the incubator will be able to offer training open to the general public or the sector; organise dissemination, relationship and networking activities and events; and testing, proof of concept and sports experiments, both in the incubator facilities and in the other facilities of the Anella Olímpica.
The project, which is part of the Barcelona Sports Hub promoted by Ajuntament de Barcelona (Barcelona City Council), is an initiative of Barcelona de Serveis Municipals (B:SM) with the collaboration of the Institut Barcelona Esports and Barcelona Activa.
