Samuel is one of the original members of LiveLike and Director of Sales for Europe, the Middle East and Africa for the company. In just under a year, LiveLike has partnered with major broadcasters like Fox Sports, Sky Sports (British Premier League games) and Sky Germany, Roland-Garros (the French Open tennis tournament), football club Manchester City and Spain’s number one football match, El Clasico, to broadcast major sporting events in VR. After graduating from the Techstars’ accelerator program, the company went on to win the 1st and Future category of TechCrunch and NFL’s startup competition.
Coming from a sports background, Samuel worked at Paris’ second biggest club, Paris FC, and at sports data startup YouFoot before joining LiveLike. A major football fan who’s still active as both coach and player, working with the sports business is more of a passion than a job for him.
