IKE-5: The Business of Sports with Peter Davis

Pete Davis has had a distinctly unique career developing multiple side businesses into his full-time career.

Pete began his career as a Designer and then as a Brand & Marketing expert.  He’s worked with companies ranging from Fortune 50’s to VC-backed startups and has experience in various industries including finance, consumer goods, technology, fashion, media, e-commerce, sports & entertainment, retail, and non-profits.

Starting out as a trader in futures, currencies, equities and options, he built a side business in financial markets.  He later began developing pitches and deal flows for companies looking to attract capital and investors.

Pete recently launched a sports business career and is currently a Partner in Eventia Sports & Entertainment Group.  Based out of Las Vegas, the event management company specializes in VIP Las Vegas events, golf tournaments, charity and gala events, and talent booking.  Pete also works as a Special Advisor to Whitecap Sports Group, a boutique sports M&A firm that brokers the sales of sports franchises, leagues, and businesses.
