Enterprise Europe Network Sport Itinerary 2023

Find out how the Network promotes the sports ecosystem and creates business opportunities for companies with international ambitions.

Enterprise Europe Network Sport Itinerary 2023

Sport represents an integral part of the lives of millions of Europeans. Support for sport builds community cohesion, grows social inclusion and leads to an enhanced sense of European identity. Sport is also a key facet of Member States and the larger European economies: the sector employs millions of European citizens and adds billions in revenue.

Promoting new initiatives for small and medium enterprises (SMEs) to acquire additional skills, abilities and new opportunities for international partnerships in this context is even more crucial.

A Network pilot action

In 2023 the Enterprise Europe Network (EEN) will promote a joint calendar of free business events (e.g., B2B, workshops, learning opportunities) focused on the sports ecosystem in the framework of important international sports events, among others.

The Network will organise 6 international B2B events and at least 5 thematic workshops/training courses open to all European SMEs and free of charge.

Companies that will successfully participate in at least 2 Network events during the year will compete for a special Final EEN Prize in Turin, in November 2023, during the  ATP Finals Tennis.

What are our goals?

The pilot action aims at achieving different goals:

  1. Mobilize business actors of the sport ecosystem
  2. Create international business opportunities
  3. Exchange of good practices
  4. Award successful SMEs that will have distinguished themselves during the planned activities with a dedicated Enterprise Europe Network Prize
  5. Transnational visibility

Join the competition

A special ceremony will take place during the ATP Finals Tennis in Torino, November 2023, to select the winners of the dedicated Network Prize.

For the 3 finalist companies:

  • Enterprise Europe Network Prize: plaque and visibility on national and European central channels
  • For non-Piedmontese companies: travel reimbursement and one night for the final ceremony in Turin, Italy

Don’t miss this opportunity!
