THE BIGGEST TREND
In 2019, Mayweather founded The Floyd Mayweather Jr. Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization focused on economic growth and development, community health and wellness, and youth education.
A number of celebrities have made their way into the healthcare space, including the US tennis champion. Andy Roddick, who announced a partnership in June with Glen Tullman’s Transcarent, a digital platform focused on the self-insured employer market.
Roddick’s ViewFi, a technology-enabled virtual orthopedics and rehabilitation platform, has partnered with Transcarent to provide patients with virtual musculoskeletal and orthopedic care through Transcarent’s consultation solution.
fellow tennis champion Serena Williams started her venture fund in 2014, called Serena Ventures, which has invested in connected fitness company Tonal, in-office and virtual healthcare provider Juno Medical, and cervical cancer screening company in the Teal Health home.
Williams also endorsed Lifeforce, a personalized healthcare platform based on a telehealth model that was co-founded by motivational speaker Tony Robbins.
