NFL giving concussion & injury tech startups a platform – Tech in Sports Ep. 30

Concussions are the number one issue plaguing sports, so we decided to add a weekly concussion prevention technology update to the Tech in Sports podcast. This week, we look at the winners of the NFL’s 1st & Future competition, plus all the biggest news from the sports tech world and we discuss whether or not social media is ruining trade deadlines.
