TACKLE WHAT'S NEXT VIRTUAL SUMMIT SERIES
Join us online for our next event in our 2021 summit series.
Our third summit on October 21-22 will be on athlete entrepreneurship.
The ingenuity and determination that you learn as an athlete are valuable. The ability to visualize the future, set a goal out in front of you and attack it is an important skill that you've been honing over the entirety of your athletic career. These very same skills are the keys to success in entrepreneurship. The opportunity to work towards goals, to build the team you want and to create something you love - you can do that. And maybe you already are!
Our Athlete Entrepreneurship Summit is here to celebrate all the athletes turned entrepreneurs that are creating amazing solutions to solve the worlds problems. And we want to encourage future side hustlers, entrepreneurs and consultants to pursue their entrepreneurial dreams.
So whether you're building something big, just dreaming about it, or you've been there- we want you to join us.
