If a multimillion-dollar contract isn’t enough to lure LeBron James back to the Cavaliers, perhaps a 1 percent stake in Cleveland start-up will.
Phenom, which is set to launch a mobile app for athletes that allows them to “show off their style and hustle,” is doing just that.
“We’re serious about the 1 percent if his team reaches out, but more importantly we feel very strongly about what his return would mean to start-ups and the overall business community,” co-founder Brian Verne said via e-mail to Crain’s Cleveland Business.
To sweeten the deal even more, Verne and his staff also painted a big ol’ mural on the roof above the Phenom’s offices (above), lauding the “Return of the King.” Who can say no to that?
So whaddya say, LeBron? Are you in?
