Together with The Players’ Impact (TPI), Republic is pleased to announce Champions for Change, an interview series with top athlete-investors, who want to share their experiences and lessons learned with you.
We live in unpredictable times. The financial playbook that your parents used likely won’t work for you. We live in an era of near-zero interest rates, with uncertainty swirling around public markets. It’s never been more important to think about building a diversified portfolio, being able to define your personal investing goals and the overarching strategy that you’re employing to achieve them.
Over the next month, we’ll be hosting a weekly Champions for Change event culminating in an allstar, all-female, Founders & Funders Pitch Competition!
Nicole Lynn, NFL/NBA agent & Coach Lori Locust, Super Bowl champion Coach
Beyond a wildly impressive track record, what do a group of gold medal-winning former Olympians, one of the first women to coach in the Super Bowl, and a trailblazing NFL/NBA agent have in common? They're all entrepreneurs and investors who are successfully navigating male-dominated industries—and they want to share their experiences with you.
Nicole Lynn is a trailblazing talent agent and entrepreneur. She began her career on Wall Street before becoming the first black female agent to represent a top-three NFL pick. A seasoned investor, Nicole will share financial lessons learned from her career so far.
Lori Locust is an active investor and groundbreaking professional in her own right: on February 7, she and her Tampa Bay Buccaneers colleague Maral Javadifar became the first female coaches for a Super Bowl-winning team.

Female Founders: Send Us Your Pitch!
At Republic, we’re committed to closing the funding gap and introducing a more equitable ecosystem for founders and investors alike. It’s 2021, and less than 10 percent of venture deals go to underrepresented founders, with female founders representing an even smaller piece of that sliver.
This needs to change, and we’re doing something about it.
If you’re a female founder that’s looking to raise capital, we’d love to hear from you. Our #ChampionsforChange series will conclude with a special event on March 18, and we want to hear from you!
Together with our friends at The Players Impact -- and a special guest panel of judges -- we’ll be hosting a Female Founder Showcase for the top entrants.
All you need to do to be considered is to share a short pitch and tag @joinrepublic on Instagram and/or Twitter. Videos are encouraged!
