White Spaces in Sports & Active Nutrition, from the Female Athlete to Esports


We kicked off the last session of the interactive broadcast series by hearing from the source with a fireside chat between a Sue Bird, WMBA, Seattle Storm,  Jessy Jess, MMA Fighter, UFC & Dr. Susan Kleiner, Founder & Owner, High Performance Nutrition. Their chat was followed by a presentation by Dr. Kleiner on How do you reach the active and athletic female market? Listen to your consumer! This session gave insights from elite female athletes on what nutrition and performance obstacles they face, what inspires them to try nutrition products, and what it takes for them to get behind a brand.

Susan discerns four key factors in effective product development and marketing:

  • Recognize the breadth and depth of female participation in all sports;
  • Respond to their performance-based needs with evidence-based products;
  • Let women and girls speak for themselves;
  • Represent female athletes authentically and allow their voices to be heard.

The genuine female athlete is your greatest product development and marketing advantage and puts your brand in the bullseye of female athlete consumer empowerment.

This was followed by a presentation from Elyse Lovett, Vice President of Marketing, Nutrition21 on Formulation for Success in the Esports Market. Her presentation discussed the rise in esports and how the market has evolved to meet the needs of these consumers.
