He wears many hats, and sometimes wears them all together.
He is a golf disruptor, sports architect, and a podcast host. Originally coming from an international architectural background, Colin Weston brings innovative designs to the sports industry and re-imagines the ways people enjoy sports, particularly golf.
“I’m an architect, an entrepreneur, and we just have to figure things out,” Weston said. “We just have to find a way that’s part of the tenacity, the curiosity, and the resolve that makes us the entrepreneurs that we are.”
As the co-founder of REVIVER Sports + Entertainment, Weston’s latest project conceptualized a surf park next to the golf course in Vancouver. His innovative approach comes from another right mindset: taking calculated risks as an entrepreneur. He is also an engaging podcast host at the ModGolf Podcast, where he talks to golf’s top influencers and entrepreneurs.
In this week’s #StartupPodcast, host Rivers Corbett talks Weston about his vision as sports innovator and how he’s pursuing entrepreneurship.
