The global Sports Technology Awards has shortlisted new TGI Partner Supplier OCEANTEE in the highly contested Start-Up category. Recognised as the leading, international mark of excellence, The Sports Technology Awards celebrate tech-led innovation in sports and this year’s awards shortlist includes 37 sports across five continents. 

“To see our name amongst this stellar line up of brands, all of whom are pioneering innovation in their respective sports, is almost unbelievable,” comments Ed Sandison Founder of OCEANTEE.  When you are focussed on delivering what is often ground-breaking work, you can lose sight of the impact your business is having on the sector you work in.  We are delighted to have our work recognised in this way – even making the shortlist is a huge achievement and we are very proud to represent golf on this high-profile global stage.”

The announcement comes just one week after OCEANTEE’s debut at the annual TGI Business Conference in Harrogate.  Partners who saw the sustainable golf brand’s product line up, which is now available to order from TGI Direct, were impressed by the breadth of the range which uses pioneering materials including Waste2Wear blockchain technology, Tencel Refibra fabric, and Roica EcoSmart biodegradable Elastane as well as its famous bamboo tee collection.

The Sports Technology Awards’ Start-Up of the Year category is unashamedly exacting,” comments Rebecca Hopkins, CEO, The STA Group: “The entry form is designed to scrutinize both the proposition and the company behind it. All start-ups which made it onto the shortlist – and many didn’t - have a strong vision and a great team behind them. These really are exciting brands to watch.”
