Mar 13, 2017 | 3:30pm – 4:30pm


Daron K Roberts

Center for Sports Leadership & Innovation

In "Battlefield to Boardroom: Tackling the Transition to Tech", founding director of the Center for Sports Leadership & Innovation, Daron K. Roberts will host a candid conversation with Patrick Willis, a former NFL All-Pro linebacker. After Willis retired from the San Francisco 49ers in March of 2015, he partnered with a Silicon Valley company only to dissolve the relationship a year later. As more players forge relationships with startups and VC firms, Patrick's experience will provide a set of lessons for creating a mutually beneficial (and profitable) union between the tech community and athletes.
