The illustrious Bryant interest in business
Bryant spent a storied twenty-year career with the Los Angeles Lakers of the National Basketball Association (NBA). He is a five-time NBA champion, a one-time most valuable player awardee, two-time scoring champion, and eighteen-time All-Star. He also has two Olympic gold medals with the US Men’s Basketball team.
Bryant is known as one of basketball’s fiercest competitors, characterized by his hyper-competitive nature.
Even prior to his retirement in 2016, Bryant has shown a keen interest in the business. He has been actively pursuing various business efforts through his venture capital firm Bryant Stibel – a fund he formed with a partner, entrepreneur Jeff Stibel.
TRON plans to use the event as a venue to share lessons from its blockchain journey with various industry stakeholders.
