Carmelo Anthony played basketball for the New York Knicks and enjoyed a successful NBA career, reaching All-Star status, as well as a 2004 Olympic bronze medalist and gold medalist in 2008 and 2012. La Nativo from Brooklyn, New York took his talent in the sport of basketball to dizzying levels, but it is not limited to this professional option. Turns out, he’s also a skilled entrepreneur who has made some successful investments in business, and has been successful in multiple initiatives, adding to his current net worth. He has achieved success in both professional basketball and the corporate world, which is something that many NBA fans are unaware of. Here are some highlights from his entrepreneurial career, which also appears to have a bright future.
Wide range of business interests
Carmelo co-founded a company called Melo7 Tech Partners, LLC. This company is an investment group within the early stage digital media industry. He is also a partner in the firm that helps fund consumer technology startups and Internet venture companies. This partnership is with Stuart Goldfarb, and the two have also joined forces at other companies, including the Vice Sports Clubhouse, and Carmelo has also gone out on his own on some business deals. He bought a professional sports team called Puerto Rico Football Club, which is the only professional team in the nation that competes in NASL competition and also has an exclusive Jordan shoe line. He has also tried to act.
Association with Nickelodeon
Anthony partnered with Nickelodeon in 2016 to develop a “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” product line under the franchise’s license. This was achieved through his company Melo7. The products were released just before the new movie in the TMN franchise.
Jordan brand sneakers offer
In addition to this, he signed a six-year contract with the Jordan shoe brand in 2003 that would pay him $ 3.5 million for the duration of the partnership. The first signature shoe released under the partnership was the Jordan Carmelo 1.5 in 2004, followed by a total of 13 signature sneakers within the Melo line. At the time he was associated with Jordan sneakers, he was only 19 years old and wore a size 15 on the sneaker. He served as the official spokesperson for the line that was sold with the Jordan M1.5 to 13. The 13 was the last edition of the line that was launched before the contract between Carmelo and Jordan expired and was not renewed, but the company he had made several million dollars during the life of the deal.
Carmelo Anthony made several appearances on television and film. His acting career began in the early 2000s when he appeared as a guest on an episode of “Ned’s Declassified School Survival Guide,” followed by an appearance in Common’s “Be” music video. He also made several guest appearances in “Nurse Jackie” and in the movie “Amazing” in 2013, in “Sons of Anarchy” in 2014, and appearances in the movie “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” in 2016 and as a comic character in the 2012 TV series “Amazing Adventures” which was a spin off of the Chinese film in which he had previously appeared titled “Amazing.” While his acting career did not take off from the point of stardom, he does have an impressive portfolio of appearances. His last television / film appearance as an actor was in 2016, and it was useful in promoting his Nickelodeon product line. Fans who had followed his NBA career were delighted to see him on a variety of television series and he gained more exposure to audiences not necessarily following sports.
Sports team ownership
He founded the Puerto Rico Football Club, which was an expansion of the North American Soccer League in 2015. This was a club that would make him profitable, but making money from the company was neither his only nor his original intention. Anthony created the club to be a kind of outreach to the community. He invested a lot of time and money in the project and it turned out to be something that would pay off well in the end, according to Wikipedia. Anthony seems to have the intuition to make sound investments, regardless of why he does so. An empire has been built by following your heart in some cases and making sound business decisions in others.
