About Impulse Network

The Impulse Network is run by the Sports Business Club at the University of St. Gallen. A team of volunteering students offers students of the sports industry a non-profit platform to take part in an international and inter-generational exchange to shape the future of the industry. We bridge the gap between academic knowledge and practical experience in the sports business. Furthermore, we aim to help and prepare young talents for a career in the sports industry by building the awareness of this profession and offering a wide range of initiatives, networking events and resources in collaboration with leading firms in the sports business.

previous partners and contributors

The Impulse Summit would not be possible without the generous support from our partners and contributors. They share our passion for sports business – we want to thank them for making everything possible. These partnerships enable the Sports Business Club at the University of St. Gallen to make a difference and to put a unique conference together.

essay competition

about

While our conference already incorporates formats of interactivity with young minds raising their voices and sharing their learnings, our aim is to further the intergenerational dialogue through an essay competition. Through this format, the next generation is offered a platform to share their opinions, which form an equally important part of the dialogue as the insights/knowledge of the experts. For participating in the essay competition we ask innovative minds to elaborate on the question below. The authors are encouraged to use their imagination while always referring their ideas and opinions to academic knowledge. As an incentive, we offer a price pool that consists of 5000 CHF that will be split among the
best three participants. Additionally the most inspiring writers will be invited to the Impulse Summit as a Global Talent.

topic

At the Impulse Summit 2021 we ask leaders of today’s sports industry to share the lessons they learned in the past 21 years.  Imagine yourself being an expert in the sports industry in 21 years (in 2042). How would you assess the question we pose to current executives for the Impulse Summit in 2021? What is your biggest lesson learned from the past 21 years?

Events

We use our different events to give varying people interested in the sports business a platform to take part in an intergenerational exchange. We have the Impulse Summit or this year the Impulse Week as our flagship events. We also have workshops with some of our partners, where we visit their headquarters and develop solutions for emerging problems together. In our industry projects we consult companies over a longer period of time to develop and create ideas and solutions. Finally, for our fellow students at the University of St. Gallen we offer events on campus such as the annual foosball tournament.
