After years playing basketball professionally, we realized that the transition to the professional non athletic world was a cumbersome journey no one prepared us for. That’s when we decided to use the experience we have built over the years, to ensure that athletes coming towards the end of their professional career, were equipped with all the right tools to be successful in the next stage of their life, whatever that may be.
Our Mission is to empower every professional athlete who is transitioning out of his or her career into the “real world”.
Our Vision is to create a better retirement experience for all professional athletes.
