Athlete Technology Group debuts in Toronto
By Adnews Staff
Athlete Technology Group, an events and media company specializing in professional athletes who are also entrepreneurs, has begun operations in Toronto. The company is an extension of the Athlete Technology Summit, an event first held in Toronto in 2019 aimed at athletes, business professionals, venture capitalists and influencers. It is intended to act as a resource for athlete entrepreneurs seeking to expand their business ventures outside of their sport. It will host a series of digital education sessions, networking events and pitch sessions. It will also work to facilitate investment and business opportunities, and offer content production support. The company is headed by Randy Osei and managing partners Andrew Safranko and Darryl Julott.
“COVID-19 shook up the world and we know it shook up the world for a lot of entrepreneurs and athletes,” said Osei. “Once the leagues were suspended a lot of athletes were left scrambling looking for other ways to generate revenue. We will be launching a long list of digital assets that will support athlete entrepreneurs across multiple industries. To restart the economies, I’ve read two things will do that, technology and entrepreneurship, and that is our focus here.”
