Our roster of Innovate Celebrate speakers includes the CTO of a robotics company, a New York Times bestseller, a sports tech maven, and top execs at Intel, Homeland Security, and GoPro. Now, we’re adding a four-time Olympic ice hockey player. Yeah, that’s right, be jealous.
In addition to her ice hockey accomplishments, Angela Ruggiero serves as Managing Director at Sports Innovation Lab, which she cofounded to serve as the leading independent market research and advisory firm delivering insights on the intersection of sports and technology.
Angela Ruggiero is also the Chief Strategy Officer for the 2024 Los Angeles Olympic Bidding Committee. It’s the city she grew up in, so it makes sense that she’d want to pair her favorite sporting event with the city of angels. She went on to graduate cum laude with a bachelor’s degree in government from Harvard University, where she was a four-time All-American, as well as an Academic All-American. She also holds an M.Ed. in Sports Management from the University of Minnesota and a M.B.A. from Harvard Business School.
