9. Head to Head: Nike Vs.Under Armour

Two companies, Nike ($NKE) and Under Armour ($UA), while both providing very similar products are different in other respects: an 80 billion difference in market cap and very different approaches to risk/reward.

In this David and Goliath scenario, we hone in on one key aspect of both companies: their adoption of disruptive technologies like 3D printing, virtual and augmented reality, and biometrics.

We’ll review recent uses cases of how they’re using these technologies, talk about some key themes for each one, and will stack them against each other and use the IoE Score to quantify which company, if any, seems to be ahead in this space.
