Join the audience of investors, international sports stakeholders and sports innovators to see 12 startups from across Australia, New Zealand, China and India compete in the world-renowned HYPE Sports Innovation (SPIN) global pitch event, partnered in Australia by The University of Queensland and Advance Queensland.

The event will be comprised of the following sessions:
SPIN Lab pitches
