Daniel Abrahams, CEO of CurrencyTransfer.com, and comments: ‘‘Since the start of our partnership, we saw entrepreneurialism across the management team at Leeds United. It’s an incredibly exciting opportunity to co-host the first Sports Tech Demo Day at Elland Road, supporting the club to further their collaborations with some of the sports industry’s leading entrepreneurs. This represents a phenomenal opportunity for ambitious companies to present real solutions to help shape the future of Leeds United.’’
