founders

In December 2014, co-founders Corinne and Maria had a conversation about the life opportunities they experienced because of mentors and a support system that believed in them every step of their journey.

They became motivated by a simple question:
“What are we doing to help the next generation?”

“Only one door has to be opened to change a person’s life forever. Nothing that I have accomplished in my professional career has happened without first having a mentor unlock a door for me. In an industry like sports broadcasting, the barriers to entry can be high and networking can define your career. Thankfully, my mentors have introduced me to decision makers while endorsing, encouraging, and advising me. These individuals never let me quit on my dreams but also gave me the tools to accomplish them. And now I would like to be that essential support system for somebody else.”
— Maria T., Co-Founder
