Ishveen Jolly: Making the Sponsorship Industry More Accessible and Efficient For All

Ishveen Jolly: Making the Sponsorship Industry More Accessible and Efficient For All
Ishveen: Glad to be here, Spiffy—thanks for inviting me! We know that sports has the power to unite people and nations; but how many realize that sponsorship is the financial backbone of sports helping athletes, teams, and events to exist? We are using technology, data, and innovation to make the sponsorship industry more efficient and effective. In the 60-billion-dollar sponsorship industry, the non-top 5% of athletes and properties often have a tougher time finding sponsorship. We focus our attention on them.

Diane Clark: Screen-Free, Active, Fun Learning That Uses Technology

Diane Clark: Screen-Free, Active, Fun Learning That Uses Technology
Diane: Thanks for having me, Spiffy! Did you notice how during the pandemic nearly everything we usually did transferred over to a screen? Even school? For most of us we were using a screen for work, school, entertainment, and staying in touch with our friends and family that we couldn't see during those difficult times. But, whilst we all appreciate screens, it's also really good to get off them when we can and be as active as possible! We thought that it would be a great idea to create something fun and active that helps our learning but also has technology involved. That's when we thought of Rock Stepper. The technology allows us to connect with and compete with our friends, measure our movement and progress, but without the heavy reliance on a screen!

Charly Young: Empowering Young Girls From the Least-Advantaged Communities
Charly: It’s great to meet you too, Spiffy! Thanks for having me. To answer your question - not all young people have access to the same opportunities, be that educational, work-related, or wider experiences. This is often related to the income of a family or an area, but it can really hold a young person back. They may not be given the same opportunities to learn. They also might not know people who can help them achieve what they want to. Combined with this, society and individuals hold unfair beliefs about what people can achieve based on their gender. Girls and young women are often told that they have to look and act a particular way, and that there are only certain jobs that they can do. This is not true; nor is it fair! We match girls with professional women from lots of different jobs to show them that it is possible!
