The Sports Industry has at least a $50 Billion dollar annual impact on the United States’ economy. That’s somewhere in the neighborhood of $1 Trillion dollars over a 20 year period. Professional athletes’ salaries and their ancillary support resources represent a significant percentage of this “river of wealth”. The problem is that the flow of this wealth has a one way direction as professional athletes’ income jets away from wealth preservation toward spend thrift frivolity and graft. And even though college athletes are the well spring of billions of dollars annually, they don’t receive a fraction of the income they help to generate, other than a tuition scholarship.
"I have seen the swift and nimble ProSquared network in action with my own eyes. When I was tasked to develop internship opportunities for student athletes as an academic advisor, one call to ProSquared yielded fantastic experiential opportunities for several students from just one referral. And when it was time for me to make a move professionally, I called on the ProSquared network once again, and I was relocated and happily employed within the matter of days."
"At its very core, ProSquared is a network of knowledgeable and sincere individuals who genuinely want to see young people be successful. Before the company was officially created, the founders volunteered to serve as adult advisors to the first and only compliance approved investment club that was comprised of Division I athletes. As a member of that club, I had the rare opportunity to participate in managing a stock investment portfolio while I was in college. The lessons I learned there contributed greatly to my confidence and ability to manage my own investment portfolio as a pro in the NFL."
PROSQUARED’s mission is to systematically provide and connect athletes with the education, resources and guidance that they need to develop the totality of their human capital, with a focus on athletes’ financial education, career planning and wealth development opportunities.
Ultimately, we aim to be catalysts for the creation of a sports business infrastructure and sports culture that values, promotes and enhances athletes’ capacity to leverage their brands and resources to improve the quality of life for themselves and society at large.
Athletes Development Institutes are multi-day interactive “educational camps” where athletes and other young adults convene in a comfortable environment to learn, network and relax. The Institute programs and workshops are designed to augment participant’s money management, communication and networking skills. Institute participants also benefit from career entrepreneurial opportunities that arise from time to time through the Institute’s robust networking environment.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we are suspending in-person events until we beat this virus. Please stay home and stay healthy.
