TACKLE WHAT'S NEXT SUMMIT SERIES
ATHLETE ENTREPRENEURSHIP SUMMIT
October 19 - 20th, 2022
Join us online for our second Annual Athlete Entrepreneurship Summit!
The ingenuity and determination 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 and ultimately in any career path you choose.
This event will aim to motivate, inspire and connect likeminded athletes who are building something great, or thinking about stepping into their next career. From goal setting to financial wellness, team building to seeking funding, and so much more, you'll leave this event feeling empowered to tackle what's next in your life.
EDUCATION & EMPOWERMENT
“The Tackle What's Next Virtual Summit was so inspiring and eye opening. It really helped to put things into perspective and helped me to learn some new tactics to use with our own student-athletes as they're trying to figure out their own careers and paths and What's Next for each of them.”
- Chelsea Popplewell, Director of Student-Athlete Development, The University of Texas at El Paso
TAKEAWAYS & ADVICE
“Exploring your options and learning from people who are already on the journey with an open mind is so important to making sure your transition gets you to the next base - thanks to all who shared their experience (and mistakes) to give a real picture to help Tackle What comes Next!”
- David, 2021 Attendee
“Sport is such a specific experience, and it's difficult to find similarly relatable experiences outside of it. As an athlete and aspiring entrepreneur, it was so refreshing to be a part of this space where like minded people echoed and addressed the same challenges I'm facing in this journey. My only regret is not being able to attend more sessions during it!”
- 2021 Attendee
