Join us for the second edition of Founders Live Athletes! We’re excited for this special All-Stars Edition in Founders Live home field of Seattle, WA.

We’re bringing together current and former professional athletes, sports leagues, and our very own Founders Live entrepreneurial community to discuss the unique challenges athletes face transitioning from full-time athlete to entrepreneur. You won’t want to miss this event where athletes will share personal stories and engage in insightful discussions.

We keep up with the Founders Live format – with food, drinks, and of course, including personal stories, insightful discussions, and an exciting pitch competition showcasing five former professional players-turned-entrepreneurs. Tell your friends and see you there!
