"Where Sports and Business meet the next Generation"



The Impulse Network is a student-driven, not-for-profit movement founded to create impulses for change in the sports industry. Out of St. Gallen, we are committed to connecting political, business, cultural, and other leaders of society to drive change on a global and regional level. Furthermore, we aim to help and prepare young talents for a career in the sports industry by building awareness of this profession and offering a wide range of initiatives, networking events, and resources in collaboration with leading firms in the sports business.


As one of the first student initiatives at HSG, we are able to contribute to the future of learning by hosting our yearly conference at SQUARE, which makes us especially proud. Here, we aim to provide a platform for intergenerational, international, and interdisciplinary dialogue to shape the future of sports. In our interactive platform, the Impulse Summit, we unite 200 leaders from in and around the industry with 60 selected Global Talents. Our Global Talents are invited to Switzerland for a 5-day program that ends with the Impulse Summit at SQUARE. Here, our experts and Global Talents challenge the status quo of the sports industry in interactive formats.


Apply as a Global Talent:

Our Global Talents are specially selected and invited international young talents either currently enrolled in an academic program or in the early stages of their professional career. We aim to ensure diversity among this cohort, including consideration for highly educated business students, outstanding stories of life paths, athletes, and further, a diverse mix of location, academic levels and experience. 


Join us as a Supporter or Host:

By joining as a Supporter, you will assist us with marketing, logistics, executive summaries, and the transport of summit participants. Here, we ask for your help across the conference week. In return, you gain access to an exclusive conference and its behind-the-scenes, with the opportunity to gain valuable insights from the sports industry. Additionally, you will receive a goodie bag and access to our afterparty! 

You can also sign up as a host, providing a place to stay for an international student attending the summit. Only a bed is needed, we supply anything else. Of course, a goodie bag and access to the afterparty is included. 



Join us as an expert: 

We aim to create a broad representation of different stakeholders, which include corporates, investment funds, federations, clubs, politicians, academics, and technology specialists. We do not focus on a single sport or discipline.
