The SDSI Charter and Strategic Direction
Establish San Diego as the Number 1 location for the Sport and Active Lifestyle industry. We intend to build and celebrate San Diego’s rich entrepreneurial sports heritage. In the same way that Boulder is known as the hub of the Outdoor business, we intend to establish San Diego as the hub of the Sport and Active Lifestyle industry.
Why San Diego?
We have a rich heritage in pioneering sport lifestyles ranging from surfing and skate and wake boarding to current sports industry hubs for Golf, Cycling, Motor Sports, Triathalon, Running, Paddle and water sports , yoga, training and wearable technologies to name just a few.
Sport Companies and Top athletes gravitate to San Diego for its world class weather, beautiful and clean oceans to the west, and majestic mountains and desert to the east. Combine them all with the adjacency to Mexico and its emerging reputation for world class manufacturing and you have the hub of our business.
And San Diego has the largest % of the core 18 to 34 year olds, well educated and committed to the San Diego lifestyle. These are our colleagues and consumers and represent the very best and sustainable labor pool imaginable.
At SDSI we network, mentor, incubate and and educate…it is our daily activity. Often we are simply a catalyst in connecting people, businesses and opportunity and it is in that role that we are proposing to establish a network of sport centric clusters, specifically for board sports like surfing, skateboarding, wakeboarding, paddle boarding, as well as cycling sports , sailing, traditional sports like baseball, soccer football and more.
