The Brooklyn Nets point guard / shooting guard, Kyrie Irving launched a new business agency, KAI 11. The recently announced consulting firm will provide coaching and mentoring services to black and women-owned businesses, supporting minority-owned businesses. His agency also partnered with a new venture-capital firm, Lockstep Ventures who has worked with Irving to raise $25 million to invest in nearly 20 businesses. Irving’s hope is to provide equitable opportunities to minority-owned businesses who may not have traditional support in their business growth. Aside from using his platform to speak up on social injustices, he is working towards social change within communities across the United States. This will give businesses the opportunity to profit, expand, and sustain in the ever-changing economy.
