Ep. #35 The Story Behind the First Venture Studio to Focus on Women and Sports, ft. Fielding Jamieson
In Ep. #35, hear Fielding Jamieson tell the story behind creating the Trailblazer Venture Studio, which is the first venture studio focused on the intersection of women and sports.
Fielding is part of the senior leadership team at R/GA Ventures where she leads their sports vertical and their strategy practice. As part of this work, Fielding is also the Managing Director of the Trailblazer Venture Studio, which was developed very intentionally by R/GA Ventures, Billie Jean King Enterprises, Elysian Park Ventures, and the Los Angeles Dodgers to focus on what they believe to be the biggest growth opportunity in sports: women.
The Trailblazer Venture Studio partners with entrepreneurs and companies—from early-stage startups to later-stage businesses—that put women leaders, athletes, and fans first. In 2022, nine organizations were selected to participate in the studio's first cohort, including: Ida Sports, The GIST, Togethxr, Curastory, Elysian Park Planning, FORTË, HER Galaxy, LOVB, and Sportsbox AI.
In this episode, hear Fielding & Caroline discuss how and why the Trailblazer Venture Studio is investing big at the intersection of women and sports.
