Investing App Public.com and NFL Star Bobby Wagner Partner to Tackle Investing Literacy


Public.com, the popular investing app, and Bobby Wagner, Seattle Seahawks All-Pro linebacker, entrepreneur, and investor, today announced a partnership to help tackle financial literacy and help people become better active long-term investors.

During the 2021-2022 NFL season, Wagner will partner with Public to bring lessons of financial literacy and economic empowerment to the app's diverse community of more than one million members, as well as promote the value of long-term active investing through the Public app to his far-reaching fan base. The partnership kicks off in three exciting ways, with more developments to come during the 2021-2022 NFL season:

Wagner has been a champion of financial literacy and wellness throughout his career, from educating his teammates in the locker room, to interning at the Seattle-based VC firm Ignition Partners, and most recently, co-founding the venture capital fund Fuse Venture Partners. Now, Wagner will bring his off-field vision and lessons to the next generation of retail investors, a population which grew by more than ten million over the past year.

"I've built my successful football career on balancing near-term goals with a long-term vision, year in and year out, and that is how I approach investing," Wagner said. "With tens of millions of new investors flooding into the stock market for the first time, I'm especially excited to partner with Public because of their unique focus on community, education, and inclusion alongside its elegant brokerage app. By joining forces, we can help more people reach the top of their financial wellness game early on in their investing journey."

"We're so excited to partner with Bobby and make him an equity holder of Public," said Public.com co-CEO Leif Abraham. "His experience as an athlete, entrepreneur, investor and advocate for financial literacy make him the perfect partner on our shared mission to make the public markets work for all people."
