NBA champion Fred VanVleet and Acast are launching Bet On Yourself, an original podcast where VanVleet and his business partner Derek Folk host conversations with emerging entrepreneurs about the obstacles and opportunities they encounter while breaking through in their industries.
The 12-episode series will premiere November 3rd.
VanVleet was an undrafted athlete who was signed by the Toronto Raptors and went on to become part of their championship team. The 27-year old was highest paid undrafted player in NBA history.
“Nearly five years ago, I stepped outside my comfort zone and opened a business for the first time. No doubt mistakes were made, but having the kind of mentorship that I did from my business partner and co-host, Derek Folk, was critical to our eventual success,” said VanVleet.
