The serial tech and gaming entrepreneur discusses the grassroots movement behind NWSL's move to LA

Leaders from Glossier, Shopify, Mastercard and more will take the stage at Brandweek to share what strategies set them apart and how they incorporate the most valued emerging trends. Register to join us this September 23–26 in Phoenix, Arizona.

On this week’s episode of Adweek’s Most Powerful Women in Sports, Adweek’s former chief content officer Lisa Granatstein sits down with Julie Uhrman, co-founder and president of Angel City FC, an LA-based National Women’s Soccer League franchise that launched earlier this spring.

With star-power investors that include Natalie Portman, Eva Longoria, Serena Williams, Billie Jean King, Mia Hamm, Julie Foudy and Abby Wambach, to name just a few, this team is in it to win it as a global brand—think FC Barcelona, with equality as its core mission.

A serial tech and gaming entrepreneur, Uhrman was the founder and CEO of Ouya, an innovative Android-based gaming console. She’s also a big sports fan and follows USC Trojans basketball and, of course, professional women’s soccer. Uhrman will share how her experience in tech and startups helped boost her business game that put Angel City FC in play.
