Northridge announces strategic partnership with Stadia Ventures

With a common sector focus and leading market positions in the sports and sports technology industries, Northridge and Stadia Ventures are delighted to announce their strategic partnership.

Stadia Ventures has developed a highly-regarded global Sports Innovation Hub for early stage investment in sports and esports. With close to 60 startups in Stadia’s portfolio, it continues to evolve while offering a robust accelerator program with senior business leaders as mentors, senior industry executives as guest speakers and partners with different areas of expertise to focus these companies and their founders on an accelerated track to success.

Northridge, as Europe’s largest sports and entertainment law practice operating Northridge TRACK (a club for growth businesses and industry participants focused on the application of technology to sport and entertainment), perfectly complements the strategic focus of Stadia Ventures.

Northridge and Stadia Ventures will be collaborating on a range of initiatives, including Stadia’s forthcoming ‘European Speaker Series’ later in 2021 as Stadia continues to build its European presence and utilise its strong network across the region.  To find out more about Stadia Ventures, visit their website.

We are delighted to be working with Jon, Tessa & the whole Northridge team. They bring tremendous experience of helping some of the world’s most recognized sports teams, athletes and brands.

We know that they will be able to offer unique guidance and wisdom through our events and to our companies this Fall especially relating to the UK & EU.

Managing Partner, Stadia Ventures

We have long admired Stadia’s programmes and experience with some of the most dynamic sports innovators in the US and globally.

Many of our clients have benefitted from their support and we see the partnership as a natural fit to build further on our common interests, particularly our support for companies transitioning from North America to European target markets.

We are very much looking forward to being able to offer guidance to Stadia’s companies through our partnership.
