After the whole HSV team and management went to LA and Southern California, the German Consulate General in San Francisco welcomed CEO Jonas Boldt and COO Dr. Eric Huwer for a visit to the Bay Area.
First stop: City of San José where they visited the region's only Major League Soccer team: San Jose Earthquakes Soccer. They met with officials from the Oakland Roots Sports Club, (United Soccer League (USL) (2. Liga), NorCal Premier Soccer (Fußballverband Nordkalifornien) and Association Football Club – visited the Golden State Warriors - one of the most successful clubs of the National Basketball Association (NBA) in recent years – and explored the Silicon Valley: They stopped by the startup cryptohunt and went to the iconic J Buck's Restaurant.
It was a pleasure to welcome the group to GISSV where they met with students from 11th and 12th grade and talked about career paths as sports professionals and in sports management, women's equality, work-life balance, and more.
Thank you to the German Consulate General San Francisco for organizing the inspiring visit!
