Stirling launches sports hive

The UK’s first sports business incubator launched at Stirling University today.
The Sport Hive is an innovative hub where sports entrepreneurs, students and businesses can come together to develop ideas.

The Sport Hive is the latest venture by SFC-funded Sporting Chance Initiative, which was set up in 2010 to identify and support Scotland’s sports entrepreneurs. The project has helped over 700 Scottish companies since it began.
