Stephen Curry

Stephen Curry’s on and off court legacy is marked by transformation and innovation. With a following of over 14M on Twitter and nearly 32M on Instagram, Curry is one of the most influential stars both on and off the basketball court. His 11-year career in the NBA with the Golden State Warriors is marked by many firsts; he was the first person to be named Most Valuable Player by unanimous vote in NBA History, the first player to hit 100 3-pointers in the NBA Finals, and one of a select few to win MVP awards two years in a row. He holds six NBA all-star selections and three NBA Championships. Off the court, he is an emerging figure in Silicon Valley, investing in innovative consumer and enterprise tech companies. Last year, Stephen and Ayesha Curry launched the Eat. Learn. Play. Foundation, whose mission is to unlock the potential of every child by ending childhood hunger, ensuring universal access to education, and enabling active lifestyles. The family foundation is dedicated to providing underprivileged children with the fundamental resources they need to thrive in life, with an emphasis on the Bay Area and Oakland communities. He most recently launched Curry Brand, a purpose driven legacy brand powered by Under Armour, whose mission follows a similar undertaking of creating opportunities and increasing access for youth sports across the country. Stephen is also the founder of the Film & Television company Unanimous Media specializing in Faith, Family and Sports content in tandem with Sony Studios, and is the Executive Producer for ABC’s no. 1 primetime show, Holey Moley.
