Episode Description

Simone Charley is one of the top strikers in the NWSL and a key piece in the Angel FC rotation. She scores goals on the pitch, but is ideating on ways to create value off of it. Angel FC has a laundry list of some incredible investors, such as Christina Aguilera, Natalie Portman, Alexis Ohanian, Becky G, Lauren Cheney Holiday, Initialized Capital and more. So we figured why not create a startup to pitch them? Simone and I sit down for 20 minutes to construct an early product ready to disrupt the sports media industry.
