Why Athletes Make Excellent Business Owners

09 Apr 2022
Theatre 2

LAPS is a platform that help current and former athletes transition into business, whether that through career workshops, job placements, educational support or introductions to businesses who partner with LAPS. Their ‘Franchise Gateway’ partnerships came about due to the recognition that athletes want to own businesses, due to the innate traits and transferable skills that professional sport has given them, and it has been growing and thriving ever since.

Holly will be discussing what athletes will bring to your business and franchise model, along with the current franchises they work in and success stories from athlete referrals through their platform.
