To be successful in your new business, you need someone who understands business and knows what it’s like to transition from pro sports into the “real world”. You also need someone with an outside perspective. We’ve got both. Meet Josh Hull and David Dupree.


“Few people in the world know what it’s like to be a professional athlete. The sacrifices. The obstacles. The dedication. The work. The rewards. Waking up every day with a sense of purpose. I loved every minute of it. But I also know what it’s like to come off the field and wonder if my skills as a pro athlete are useful anywhere else in the world. Honestly, I went through a season of feeling useless and directionless. But entrepreneurship has changed that for me. I’m excited again. I’m not angry and depressed anymore. I don’t sit and long for my NFL days anymore. I have purpose.”
