Broncos safety David Bruton is one of 23 current and former NFL players scheduled to take part in the NFL’s Investment for Impact program this offseason.
The NFL Business Management and Entrepreneurial’s Investment for Impact event will be held from April 18-21 at the University of Notre Dame, which is Bruton’s alma matter.
The program includes keynote speakers and panel discussions featuring academic experts and corporate executives, as well as a business planning workshop, a session matching players with faculty mentors, a “venture fair,” and a trip to the Annual Notre Dame Blue-Gold Football Scrimmage.
“The opportunity to play in the NFL has provided a platform to have an impact on our communities,” said Brady Quinn, a six-year NFL veteran who helped develop the program. “It is my hope that through the Notre Dame Entrepreneurial program, attendees may learn how to invest with an impact for the greater good.”
“I’m proud to have had a hand in bringing Investment for Impact to my alma mater, and assisting in forming a partnership between University of Notre Dame and the NFL for the continuing education of professional athletes,” added center Jeff Faine, who also helped found the program. “It has been a longstanding goal to give back in a meaningful way to the game that has provided so much opportunity for me. This course will provide a template on how to bridge traditional business models with a focus on the greater good of humanity. I believe social entrepreneurship is the wave of the future.”
Player enrollment criteria include a demonstrated interest in business, essays, and NFL playing experience.
With the longer offseason, NFL Player Engagement offers current and former players 10 training programs for post-NFL careers.
