Today, we're thrilled to have Jeremy Pressman on the Thrive Study AbroadCast to share his inspiring journey from being a basketball junkie to a successful venture capitalist.
From an early age, Jeremy pressman was obsessed with basketball; Jeremy made it onto college recruiting lists after trying out for the 5-star basketball camp. He eventually landed a spot on the Yeshiva University basketball team.

Working with the Adidas founding family, Jeremy invested in the future of sports, fitness, and gaming technology. He even had the opportunity to bring NBA legend Michael Redd to Israel.
