Kyle has always been an entrepreneur: It started as a kid, wheeling and dealing at the lemonade stand and trading basketball cards with friends. After a brief stint as a golf professional after graduating from Ball State in 2008, Kyle spent two years in the corporate world and discovered “corporate life” was not for him. Armed with passion and an idea, he began networking which led to founding his own business. Over the last seven years building ZOOOM, a sports software company, he has learned the ins, outs, ups, and downs of business from raising capital to developing and selling a suite of products. He has built networks all over the world and worked alongside some of the brightest people in his industries. From interacting with professional athletes to pitching to one of the largest professional sports organizations, to socializing with 50 of the most influential individuals in the world, the entrepreneur life has pushed him further than he could have imagined. Kyle's goal in business and life is to give back and continue to build businesses that will provide opportunities for others to grow, succeed, and push themselves to be greater.
