The Cronos Group is again focusing on innovation, this time at the crossroads of data analysis, artificial intelligence and sport.
“We are happy to be part of The Cronos Group. SoccerLAB is internationally successful and this gives us the opportunity to grow even faster. The use of data is becoming increasingly important in the sports world. In addition to football, with TennisLife, we have taken the first steps towards expanding into other sports. Thanks to the support from The Cronos Group, we can shift to a higher gear”, Eddy Schuurmans & Jim Kunnen relate – Founders of SoccerLAB.
“The use of data is becoming increasingly important in the sports world. SoccerLAB contributes to our larger sports story where we want to focus even more on innovation, technology and sports science. As a group today, we are strongly committed to data analysis and artificial intelligence. You need relevant data for this. SoccerLAB offers us the data with which we can get started. In this manner, we can offer sports clubs more and greater insights about their players.” says Wim Vanden Driessche, The Cronos Group.
SoccerLAB is a successful spin-off of UHasselt. The Cronos Group has been working together with UHasselt for some time through its Limburg subsidiary Wingmen in specific domains where this collaboration is the next logical step.
“Wingmen offers entrepreneurs in Limburg a solid springboard. Together with UHasselt, we are bringing together certain things such as data analysis, science and entrepreneurship within specific domains”, Ann Simons, Founder of Wingmen, explains.
