Our fave quote from Anna Hu interview

“How do you give the feeling that fans get when they see themselves on the jumbotron? How do you get that feeling of fan in the arena? So bit by bit that idea turned into kind of the company you see today.”

About Anna Hu

Anna Hu started her career in the corporate world working for some of the World's  famous brands like Lexus Canada, Apple and Microsoft. Few years after her stint on these top brands, Anna finally took the challenge and pursued her entrepreneurial dream. This and her interest in the sports industry eventually led to co-founding Brizi in 2016.

Brizi started out as the world's first social drone where sports fans can direct a drone to take an aerial selfie using their phones during game day. Over time, Brizi has grown in several ways including the development of a stationary robotic camera system that would swivel over to your seat in the stadium which are now called BriziCams. Brizi works with organisations across NBA basketball, European soccer, and Grand Slam tennis to deliver an authentic high affinity sponsorship asset that captures fan insights.

Anna and her team at Brizi continues to work hard to ensure they deliver the best fan experience to sports fans, teams and organisations.

Aside from being an entrepreneur, Anna is a creative and tech junkie who is also passionate about music. At present, she juggles her time in Toronto, Boston and Brisbane and continue to share and inspire people with the startup story of Brizi. She is also a Forbes 30 Under 30  awardee in 2018 and has been recognised as one of the brightest young entrepreneurs.

Really good

★★★★★ in Apple Podcasts by MacStewie1986 from Australia on February 3, 2019

I was looking for a podcast that combined sports and marking with it having an Aussie flavour but still looks at the global stage. This podcast delivers.
