Why do we do what we do?

Today athletes are at constant risk:

  • More than 70%  of NFL players and 60% of the NBA  will file for bankruptcy in the first five years after retiring.

  • It's four times more likely for an MLB player to go bankrupt compared to the rest of the population.

  • Between 2004 and 2018 in the United States, professional athletes suffered fraud amounting to more than $600 million.

Social networks have brought athletes closer to the fans but they have also put them at risk of reputational crises. However, staying out of the discussions puts them outside the current trends:

  • The global trend fortunately sees athletes as integral figures and individuals of society and no longer as entertainment assets.

  • This entails the opportunity for athletes to increase their brand and reputational value by getting involved in causes of social interest.

In addition to this, athletes must seek to prepare for the moment when they decide to end their sports career in order to benefit from it even when it has finished.

Our philosophy

Protect the athlete

  • Athletes today are at constant risk for reputational, value, or financial losses.

  • Our goal is to provide you with the necessary tools and information so that you can always make the best decisions for your present and future.  

Never exploit the athlete

  • We will never charge a percentage of contracts signed by the athlete. The athlete is the sole owner of her and his brand and value.

  • We seek to empower athletes so that they can benefit from their work in a sustainable way, while generating a positive impact on their life and community.

What Are We & What Are We Not

We are not:  

  • A representation agency before teams nor are we a digital marketing company.

We are:  

  • A company focused and specialized in supporting the integral development of the athlete 'off the field', providing a comprehensive service that ensures their success off it.

  • A company that helps athletes identify and solve the problems they face in planning their post-sports career by connecting them with verified, honest and efficient contractors while providing constant support. 

  • An ally to look-out and protect the athlete's interests.
