Kobe Bryant Would Rather Be Known for Venture Investing than Basketball
After retiring from the NBA, Mr. Bryant’s mission has been to inspire the next generation of entrepreneurs. In an August 2016 interview to CNBC, he expressed how he would rather be known for venture investing than basketball.
He shared the following during the interview:
Playing basketball, the focus is always on winning. Winning championships, winning championships, winning championships. Now, championships come and go. There’s going to be another team that wins another championship, another player that wins another MVP award.
But if you really want to create something that last generations, you have to help inspire the next generation, and they create something great, and then that generation will inspire the one behind them, right? And that’s when you create something forever. And that’s what’s most beautiful.
