“Last year FanWide participated in the Sports Tank’s Next Gen Arena, and we had the opportunity to meet dozens of sports technology investors and influencers. It was one of the most worthwhile events that we have participated in, we are now in discussions about the possibility of an investment with Sports Tank sponsor, the football co., and were invited to Germany to pitch in the leAD sports accelerator.”
– Symon Perriman, President & Founder, FanWide
