Talent Development

our Impact Strategy

Based on InnoPower Founder Emil Ekiyor's background as a former National Football League player, we want to send a strong message to the nation's tech-based, high-growth, sustainable industries. The NFL (and NBA) have a successful business model that relies on a trickle of top-level talent being prepared, equipped, and trained to play the game in the nation's most impoverished, most economically starved communities. That is where an $80B sports industry seeks talent because they recognize the value inherent in Black children regardless of family and financial status. This business model and system of cultivating elite talent among the nation's most Underestimated and disadvantaged Black youth has elevated American pro sports leagues that are unmatched worldwide. Non-sports industries should adopt the philosophy of identifying and nurturing talent from our MVP (Most Vulnerable Populations) to build multi Billion Dollar industries.
