The Team

We are a sports/technology company based in New York City, with a focus on creating tools and experiences designed to improve the futures of professional athletes. Our team is made up of former Wall Streeters from elite firms like Goldman Sachs and Bridgewater Associates, and former and current elite athletes, who have come together unified in our love for sports and our desire to help others. 

We recognize that the hard work and dedication required to become elite athletes are some of the very same traits that make the best and most successful business professionals. We also recognize that there still exists a major gap – in knowledge, guidance, access, and opportunity – which prevents many athletes from having the best possible futures after they complete their careers as professional athletes. Our aim is to close that gap through coaching and technology, while being sure that we build an incredible business along the way.
