Private investment platform Patricof Co announced an investment this week in IMG Academy with more than 50 top clients participating in the deal, including Dak Prescott, Justin Jefferson, Steve Kerr, CC Sabathia, Michelle Wie West, and Jason Kelce.

From an education and athletic standpoint, the resources they offer are second to none.”
