After working in the youth sports industry for a few years, Sherif noticed a lack of options sports organizations had for merchandise.

“Working with youth sports organizations has always been a passion of mine because of the critical life skills they offer their players,” explained Sherif.

Sherif created Team Fund Up, a business that provides wholesale sports gear/merchandise to local schools. Recently the business has grown to include local sporting goods stores, which has doubled his sales. Sherif’s proudest achievement is working with nonprofits to raise money critical to programs that help homeless individuals get off the streets and into jobs.

However, Sherif has found it difficult to scale his business. Rent is high and equipment is expensive. With this loan, he will be able to purchase more equipment to increase productivity.

“Professionally, this business has the potential to help over 100 million sports players raise money for their organizations to help those organizations grow in the community to provide more critical services to people in need of a positive outlet,” explains Sherif.

Help Sherif build his business and encourage youth and adults to lead a healthy and active lifestyle!
