Hyperice Founder Anthony Katz | Risk/Reward w/ Ros Gold-Onwude

From his start as a high school teacher to scaling Hyperice to a company valuation of $700M and high-profile investors including Anthony Davis, Naomi Osaka, and Patrick Mahomes, Anthony Katz has truly had a journey. In this episode of “Risk/Reward,” presented by Goldman Sachs, Katz tells Ros Gold-Onwude about taking his singular idea of a “wearable” for icing muscles during recovery and building it into a full-scale product line.

He discusses his early connection with the late Kobe Bryant and how the Black Mamba’s feedback helped challenge him to make better products, what he learned in getting insights from aerospace manufacturers, and how Hyperice became the go-to product for the NBA, the NFL, the MLB, and many individual pro sports teams.
