The GSIC facilitates synergies and provides it’s partners with value-added services that enable sports entities and companies to grow and develop with the help of experienced professionals in different environments such as finance, innovation and product development.
Our main service providers are our own partners that make their best services aand products vailable to the market.

Workshops for sport entities

The GSIC has developed a methodology of Design Thinking that is applied in the workshops that the association organizes for the different sports entities. The methodology consists of two phases: first, the challenges of each entity are detected by area and they are prioritized according to their importance. Then, we work with the brainstorming, relating them to each area and, based on the material developed during the working session, we prepare a route map for the entity in question. The objective of these sessions is to initiate sports entities in their digital transformation processes, organizing them a work session in which they can have assistance from the GSIC professionals who will guide them to generate ideas and think of possible solutions to their challenges.

Business Days

The Business Days are a methodology for mutual knowledge and business opportunities. With the Business Days the GSIC launched a format of activity particularly oriented to the generation of business opportunities between companies of all sizes and sports organizations. This activity focuses on previously defined themes that guarantee real possibilities of collaboration between the participants of the event. It can be done in person or remotely through Microsoft Teams, so we can connect any partner with the sports entity interested in knowing the technological innovation applied to sport. Sports entities are showing more and more interest in this type of activity that allows them to advance in their digital transformation processes. On the other hand, this activity allows the GSIC to provide its members with good business opportunities and to generate personal contacts with the executives and decision makers of sports entities.

Inspiration Day (for all the ecosystem)

It is a methodology that was implemented in the GSIC with the aim of making the operation of the Center, its structure and working model, better known to all the publics who wish to learn about it. In addition, we offer a detailed view of the current situation and the development of the sports industry in connection with the latest technological innovations. The main audiences for this activity, which has always been very successful, are companies in our sector and others not directly related to the sports industry. The former are interested in understanding the GSIC model and the possibilities opened up by the Center to the entities that make up our ecosystem, and the latter want to broaden their general knowledge about the sector and, in some cases, seek new ideas for developing their business. This activity is also of interest to educational institutions and they include it in their training programs. Throughout the year, we have received several visits from groups of students starting with children in primary school and ending with students in different Master's programs. It is worth noting that these visits are both national and international origin.

Diagnostics: Current situation of sports entities

During 2019, the GSIC offered this service to different sports entities to help them identify their current situation in digital transformation. Through a study conducted to the entity in question identifies where it stands compared to other actors of similar nature in the industry and offers a series of data and recommendations about the solutions to be implemented along with their respective order of priority. Thanks to this type of initiative, sports entities can start their own digital transformation process and new business opportunities are generated for technology companies and startups.

Business trips (members get 50% discount)

Business trips are an excellent opportunity to meet relevant players in the sports industry in different countries. The first business trips made were organized by the GSIC in collaboration with Microsoft Sports and were undoubtedly very successful among the members. These experiences have allowed the GSIC to develop the concept of business travel where we offer our members to travel to different countries strategically interesting for their business. A business trip provides GSIC members with various networking opportunities with relevant sports entities in each country concerned, such as clubs, federations and leagues. They can also meet large companies linked to the sports industry and the media. In addition, GSIC has developed its network of ambassadors to achieve more presence in different countries. One of the opportunities that arise from the relationship with this network is the organization of business trips to the country of each ambassador. In this way we offer our members the best agendas for these trips and also facilitates the GSIC from the point of logistics organization.

Working Groups (for members only)

The working groups are born as a necessity to give an answer to the companies that compose our ecosystem with specific challenges or processes of technological or knowledge transfer that need structured support and with results in demo or proof of concept format. We propose them as meeting points where to develop solutions to real challenges for technological innovation in the sector and, therefore, this initiative has as a final objective the implementation of specific projects. This allows companies to be at the forefront of innovation in the sector, to act as driving forces for other industries and, therefore, to play an important role in innovation and sport. The working groups are constituted as closed spaces for the work of the members, although on certain occasions experts can also be invited, to enrich the contents of this. Currently the association has already started different working groups such as Education, Sports, Intelligent Stadium and Professional Sports.

Knowledge transfer conferences (members priority)

Activities of this type serve as an emphasis for the creation of a working group since they allow us to explore the interest generated by the topics about which we are proposing the future lines of work of the GSIC. These are events in which we give exclusive priority to our members so that they can expose the current topics of the fields in which they work and discuss them with the public formed by the members of our ecosystem. Thanks to these actions, from the association we can evaluate the possible ways of developing research and work that bring innovation closer to the sports sector.

Virtual Meetings (for members only)

International Virtual Meetings, events that strengthen links with international members of the GSIC as they are done virtually using Microsoft Teams. Our Virtual Meetings are virtual spaces where our members can share their solutions with others. Thanks to these monthly meetings, international members, located in different continents, can share their activity and knowledge of the sector, as well as carry out networking activities.

Reports

From its beginnings as an innovation center, the GSIC has considered on several occasions the creation of reports for the industry to help our positioning as experts in different topics of the sports sector. In 2019, we have been able to produce a report on our members' vision for the digital transformation of sports entities by 2025. Thanks to the extensive ecosystem built up by the GSIC over the years, we have the opportunity to reach out to relevant entities and senior professionals with extensive industry experience who can contribute great value to our reports.
