The Impulse Network is a student-driven, not-for-profit movement founded to create impulses for change in the sports industry. Out of St. Gallen, we are committed to connecting political, business, cultural, and other leaders of society to drive change on a global and regional level. Furthermore, we aim to help and prepare young talents for a career in the sports industry by building awareness of this profession and offering a wide range of initiatives, networking events, and resources in collaboration with leading firms in the sports business.
The Impulse Network serves as the mother organisation encompassing all entities of the initiative. It is made up of the Board of Trustees and the Management and run by long-term members of our initiative. All content-driven work beyond the Impulse Summit is also run at this level. After three successful years, it has become apparent that the Sports Business Club requires a strong backbone to become a relevant initiative in the sports industry. While our flagship event, the Impulse Summit, is organised by our student-team of the SBC, the Impulse Network provides strategic direction and additional resources to create a memorable and rich experience for all team members of the SBC.
Sports Business Club
The Sports Business Club organises our annual conference and is run by students from the university that organise and carry full responsibility for the event, but also embark on a yearly team journey filled with opportunities for personal development and career starts, called the Impulse Program.
To secure the long-term involvement of our members, an extensive Alumni network exists with networking opportunities for team alumni and other participants of our events.

From the base in St. Gallen, we are committed to connecting political, business, cultural and other leaders in society to drive change on a global and regional level.
In everything we do, we strive to educate and demonstrate outstanding entrepreneurship through the students involved in our initiative — and all of this with moral and intellectual integrity.
In our activities, we aim to engage various communities in order to foster an intergenerational and interdisciplinary exchange. Since our foundation in 2017, we were able to host many events and engage students and experts from all over the world.
