Designed by Athletes for Athletes

What We Do

EDGE is designed by athletes, for athletes. Our mission at EDGE is to partner with college student-athletes and professional athletes who will be making the transition from elite athletics to working professionals by utilizing mentoring, networking and resources provided by former college and professional athletes who have successfully made the transition themselves.

Together, with changing the way athletes enter their next phase, EDGE partners with companies to change the way they recruit their talent. Built from the principles of recruiting in sports, companies will be able to have an EDGE in bringing new talent to their teams.

For Athletes

Discover the EDGE mentoring program, Former Athlete Database, and Company Partnerships, and streamline the transition into your next career path.

For Companies

Evolve the way your company discovers and recruits talent to your corporate team!

“I often say we don’t talk about the transition for student-athletes enough. It’s a time of uncertainty, self-doubt, and a long road to re-identifying who you are and what your purpose is. The impact a mentor could have had on my personal experience as I moved into the “real world” would have been invaluable.  Little did I know at the time, employers are looking for the transferable skills that nearly every athlete carries with them following a successful playing career.

The Edge Program has my full support. It’s exactly what former athletes hoped for and what future athletes need.”

“For many student-athletes, the transition to a working professional is as tough as they come.

The Edge Program, with the help of former athletes of various backgrounds, will help assure athletes there is a path forward, when sports are no longer an option.”

“This is something that I wish that I had when I was transitioning from college soccer to figuring out what I wanted to do with my career, post-athletics.

It is super important to put some sort of structure and guidance into place. Athletes are highly desirable job candidates but the athletes themselves don’t know this and worse, don’t know how to position this.

I wish I had guidance earlier on to figure this out!”
