The Fireside Chat, titled “Women athletes are the next sporting empire,” to address the topic of female athlete entrepreneurs in the new $100 billion creator economy.
Obsesh CEO and Cofounder Tracy Benson will be joined alongside 2x WNBA Champion, Atlanta Dream Owner and Entrepreneur Renee Montgomery for a fireside chat at Web Summit in Lisbon, Portugal on November 2nd.
Titled, “Women Athletes are the Next Sporting Empire,” the intimate discussion will address how Montgomery is not only a successful entrepreneur, but how she, and other top female athletes, are building their brands in the new $100 billion creator economy. These athletes are not only making multi million-dollar moves across industries, they are radically shifting the sports industry as we know it today and driving the important conversation around social justice, equal pay for women, Black Lives Matter, and more.
The fireside chat will be featured on Web Summit’s SportsTrade stage which explores how tech is changing the face of the world’s oldest pastime and includes speakers from athletic icons to sports brand giants, to tech companies and more.
