Innovation Guides Everything We Do

Multiple times a year, CapTech hosts an internal Innovation Challenge related to emerging technologies. Why do our people love this challenge? CapTechers have the opportunity to form cross-functional teams and collaborate with people across the organization with whom they otherwise may not have the opportunity to collaborate with. CapTechers also enjoy the support from leadership to have fun, learn, and show off their expertise with the latest technologies that are transforming the world.

Sports Innovation Challenge

Our last challenge was Innovation in Sports, which required teams to develop innovative solutions for the Sports industry. The winning team developed a mobile companion app for sports that helps fans grow their knowledge and increase their engagement in real-time while watching a game, match, tournament, etc.

The team’s research indicated that football was the most popular sport to watch online or broadcast TV— and a Facebook study showing 94% of participants kept a smartphone on hand while watching TV, making it a de facto remote control. They hatched their plan. With the lack of a strong broadcast-mobile crossover application, they could take advantage of an unrealized opportunity to increase sports engagement through a mobile app of their own design.
