Athlete + Coach + Fashion Brand Founder

Our guest, AK Ikwaukor, a former professional athlete known as Coach AK, is an entrepreneur, consultant and strategic storyteller who has traveled to 30+ countries working with students, professional athletes, coaches, government agencies, celebrities, CEO’s, employees of Fortune 100 companies, scholars, victims affected by terrorism and even community leaders from around the world through his entrepreneurial ventures.

His endeavors have included work in sports diplomacy, storytelling, fashion, VR, and global education. He has led an unorthodox path which began by narrowly missing the 2008 Olympic games to working at top educational institutions.

In 2018 AK joined a team of former athletes and a group of outstanding designers to launch a fashion brand called E-Lete Styles – a high end professional attire brand for male athletes.

You will be entertained and fascinated by AK's entrepreneurial adventures! He goes deep into how and why he launched his fashion brand business, and shares the best mindset hacks for managing the high levels of uncertainty found on the startup trail.
