Innovators' Circle 2016 open for entries

Horse racing's first pitch contest, giving entrepreneurs a chance to bring change and innovation to the horse racing industry, is now open for entries! And just like in last year's inaugural event, the winner of the Innovators' Circle competition will win at least $15,000. The contest's finalists will also earn significant exposure and access to the executives in horse racing.

So make a pitch 
Change your future
Change horse racing's future

Horse racing needs you. The industry has been slow to adopt, develop and integrate new ideas and new technology. New generations of fans are not discovering the sport. 

Innovators' Circle wants to change that, Shark Tank-style.

At this year's Global Symposium on Racing & Gaming, we're giving entrepreneurs a chance to pitch their ideas or products to innovate racing to a panel of top industry executives. If the judges like your ideas, you'll get a chance to earn their approval and maybe even strike a deal with them.

Your pitch will also be by seen dozens of key decision makers in the racing industry. There's never been a better platform to pitch a new business idea to horse racing executives. You'll have access to decision makers and capital, visibility and a platform to make your case. What more can you ask for?

Look for more updates on the 2016 competition soon! And if you're interested in sponsoring the contest, please contact us. There are still some sponsorship slots available.
