American professional basketball NBA player Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors attends a commercial event for Under Armour at Asian Games Stadium on September 3, 2016 in Guangzhou, China.
“Playing in Silicon Valley’s backyard has exposed me to information and resources that I’m excited to share through the Summit,” Curry told Bloomberg. “Whether you’re thinking about your first move into entrepreneurship or investing, or perhaps already a veteran in the space, it’s about surrounding yourself with the right team and putting in the work to always be improving as a professional.”
Aside from the summit and Slyce, Curry is also part-owner of venture-funded app CoachUp, which helps connect high school and college athletes with private coaches. Outside of tech, he’s secured lucrative endorsements from Under Armour, JPMorgan Chase, Brita, Vivo and Press Play, bringing his off-court earnings to $35 million, according to Forbes.
“I hate to put myself in this statement, but he’s taken what I did to another level,” Nash, now a player development consultant for the Golden State Warriors, told CBS Sports.
