Event Details

The social role of sport enterprises is being increasingly recognized at both local and global levels. Sport can influence community cohesion, physical and mental health, social inclusivity, and provides positive role models across society.

More businesses in sport are incorporating these social aspects into their plans as a way of differentiating themselves from their competitors. This, in turn, has led to more social innovation in sport. Recently, there has been more emphasis on social entrepreneurship in sport due to the growing need to capture its societal impact.

That´s why, we invite you to attend our next training and mentoring session on “Making impact on the sports industry through the social entrepreneurship” offered by German Otalora, LATAM Director, Microsoft Airband Initiative
