Our Process

How We Work

The OneTeam Collective is seeking companies at all stages of growth across a spectrum of categories, and will consider any company that delivers on the mission of improving the lives of professional athletes, their fans and athletes everywhere.

The OneTeam Collective Board consists of representatives from each founding partner and professional athletes on the Athlete Advisory Board who all play a critical role in the selection and development process. Together, we jointly decide which applicants will be selected. Every deal will be different based on a number of factors, including, which founding partners are participating.

The OneTeam Collective offers companies at all stages access to professional athletes and their intellectual property rights; access to research and development support; potential for funding; and mentorship from industry-leading investors and brand marketing consultants.
