Live from Vegas during the Big Game weekend!

Founders Live teams up with Hard Rock Live, T-Mobile and others for an unforgettable and inspiring experience!

Join us for the next edition of Founders Live Athletes! This year we gather in the Entertainment capital of the world in Las Vegas.

We’re bringing together current and former professional athletes, entertainers, sports leagues, and our very own Founders Live entrepreneurial community to discuss the unique challenges athletes face transitioning from full-time athlete to entrepreneur.

We keep 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!

After the pitches and audience Q&A, the crowd will vote on a winner who will not only receive an award, but recognition from the crowd and also the opportunity to talk more about their product or service. So bring your friends and coworkers, grab some food and drink, get to know your local entrepreneurs and vote for what you think will be the next big thing… built around the world.

The Founders Live winners package includes the Professional Boost membership with over $900,000 in cash savings on over 90 essential apps and services for startups, as well as the chance to compete in a future Founders Live Prime Time global event.
