Where will it take place?

This year’s edition of the FanXP will be 100% online. All sessions including the pitch competition will be conducted through video conference using Microsoft Teams.

When is it taking place?

The event will take place from June 21st to June 28th. With activities such as the mentoring sessions, keynote presentations by Euroleague Basketball executives and the pitch competition happening online across 6 days.

When is the deadline for applications?

The application period will end on April 30th 2021, so make sure you submit yours before that date.

All start-ups are called to present their products to Euroleague Basketball (EB) by applying through the website. Our jury panel will select 10 of them as finalists and they will face the challenge, receive mentorship sessions, interact with EB staff and partners, clubs, and take part in the pitch competition. Some of the finalists will be selected by EB and its clubs to conduct a proposed project in a 10 week incubation program.

The 10 finalist startups will be asked to adapt their product to Euroleague Basketball’s ecosystem and propose a program to be conducted with the league or one of its clubs. The pitch competition will ask those 10 startups to pitch their product, service or solution and their proposal for how it will integrate within the EB ecosystem.

We are interested in all start-ups of all maturities. As long as you have a minimum viable product, we would welcome your application. Maybe you have a product already, maybe you even have paying customers. If you feel that your start-up would benefit from working with Euroleague Basketball and its continent-wide ecosystem of clubs, media partners, players, stadium operators and sponsors, then we’d love to receive your application!

You will get to develop your project within the Euroleague Basketball ecosystem, learning the specific needs and pains of the top European basketball properties. We will work with the start-ups chosen for the incubation program to leverage their industry-related knowledge, expertise, and product, solution or service to drive innovation in the fan experience around the beautiful game of basketball. Specific opportunities and benefits you can expect are:

  • To work at the heart of a unique sports ecosystem in close proximity to the leading basketball league in Europe.
  • To receive business, technology, and innovation insights and expertise from the jury, EB mentors, club representatives and commercial partners.
  • To develop a network of contacts across the European continent to drive your business growth.
  • Test your product and service in a Euroleague Basketball environment.
  • Pitch your start-up and product, service or solution to the whole EB ecosystem.
  • Expose your company to the market through the communication and marketing activities undertaken by EB, FanXP and its partners.
  • Once you’ve completed your application you will get a confirmation email that will inform you that your application has all the necessary information to enter the evaluation phase. Our jury panel will evaluate your proposal individually. Based on their decision, the top 10 startups will be selected and announced as finalists!
