ABOUT THE TPI TRANSITION ACADEMY

WHO WE ARE

The Players’ Impact originated as a group of athletes interested in investing in startups. As its community grew, it pivoted and expanded to focus on athlete entrepreneurs interested in more than investing, becoming hub for business-minded pro seeking to achieve business success, preserve and build wealth, and leave a legacy beyond their sports careers.

Transition Sports & Entertainment is a strategic and creative agency specializing in work with athletes and sport and entertainment-focused companies.  Transition’s team features a collection of experts who have found proven success within various professional categories including business, financial, marketing and communications, social media, and visual arts.  This year, Transition acquired SporTech Ventures, a global sports technology firm which empowers athletes through investment, incubation, and experiential opportunities, to complement its existing capabilities.

OUR MISSION

To empower athletes to position themselves and their brands as enduring businesses – to transcend their value on the field to create economies of meaning for the benefit of themselves, their families and their communities.

Combine an extensive and elite cross-sport athlete network with industry experts, early stage business resources, and high-end investment opportunities.

Our ecosystem has everything an athlete entrepreneur and investor needs to thrive and successfully launch into new endeavors.
