This is an event by our affiliate organization, New York Venture Community Sports, in New York City, hosted and presented by General Assembly.
As more and more athletes and influencers think about leveraging their significant assets, value, and presence, we have seen a plethora of new funds in the marketplace focused on digital and sports investing. These groups include leagues, players associations, individual, groups of athletes and others. There has never been a better time to control all aspects of one's brand and focus/invest in post-career opportunities. Who does it well? How is it done? We will look at this growing opportunity with those investing and those looking to find ways to invest in brands big and small. Panelists to be announced soon.

Sponsorship, Marketing Services, Corporate Partnerships...call it what you want, but it is a serious business in the sports economy. Sponsorship has become one of the foundational pillars necessary for every team, league and rightsholder to build a sustainable and valuable property. What was once a business of 'stickers and logos' has blossomed into a highly sophisticated sector requiring cutting edge technology wrapped around digital, social, causal, and fan integration. Please join us for an insightful and introspective look into the ever evolving world of sports sponsorship along with the key influencers shaping this arena.
The panelists include: Doug Smoyer (Chief Sales Officer, Van Wagner Sports), Jeff Marks (President, Premier Ventures), Rob Striar (CEO, M Style Marketing), Michael Neuman (Managing Partner Scout Sports / Horizon Media), and Bill Smith, (Vice President Team Sales MSG) and will be moderated by NYVC Sports veteran, Tina Cervasio.
