Nets’ Trevor Booker Owns Eighteen Different Companies
The NBA is notoriously known for seeing many of its former players go broke once they step away from the game. Trevor Booker of the Brooklyn Nets is trying to never became one of those ex-players.
Known for his hard work on the court, Booker puts in just as much effort off the court when he steps into the business world. Through his seven seasons in the NBA, the Nets forward has invested wisely in his money and now owns 18-different companies – companies, which include sports academies, a private high school, a record label, and a VC firm.
Not too shabby at all!
“To say that I’m an entrepreneur is an understatement,” Booker told Business Insider.
Booker is coming off a very productive season, one in which he averaged 10-points, and eight rebounds per game on 56.1% shooting from the field.
And Booker is still not done yet, as he continues to make visits to different business, to see what else he can do off the court. Recently, Booker took a tour of Silicon Valley, where the virtual reality STRIVR company is located alongside a few other NBA players.
“One of the things that we brought up is that we don’t know what each other has going on,” Booker said about his fellow basketball players. “We wish that more [players] would take advantage of their resources to start business ventures and do something different.
“We can really help each other’s businesses, so that’s something we vowed to do.”
