Bengals Linebacker Vincent Rey To Participate In NFL's "Investment For Impact" Program

Jamie Sabau

The NFL, in conjunction with some current and former players, is putting together a unique program with a focus on business and entrepreneurship. Bengals linebacker Vincent Rey will be involved in the program.

In a press release from the NFL on Tuesday, it was made public knowledge that the league as well as some current and former players will be putting together a unique event in an effort to teach business and entrepreneurial topics to players. The event was conjured up by two University of Notre Dame alums--quarterback Brady Quinn and former Bengals center, Jeff Faine and it is an event that is part of a league-wide interest in continuing education for players.

There are 23 current and former NFLers attending the event and it just so happens that current Bengals linebacker is one of those 23 attending the symposium. Along with a vendor fair of sorts, the symposium will also hold a "pow-wow" between players and executives of prominent businesses in mini-roundtable sessions and have a panel of speakers.

Said Quinn of the purpose of the event: "I'm proud have had a hand in brining 'Investment for Impact' to my alma mater, and assisting in forming a partnership between University of Notre Dame and the NFL for the continuing education of professional athletes. It has been a longstanding goal to give back in a meaningful way to the game that has provided so much opportunity for me. This course will provide a template on how to bridge traditional business models with a focus on the greater good of humanity. I believe social entrepreneurship is the wave of the future."

The event will be held from April 18th-21st at the University of Notre Dame. Other speakers include another famous Fighting Irish alum in former quarterback Rick Mirer, as well as former NFL running back Warrick Dunn. Former NFL linebacker Adalius Thomas and quarterback Charlie Batch will also be in attendance.
