Program Provides NFL Alumni with the Resources to Start and Grow a Business
Wolters Kluwer’s BizFilings, a leading provider of incorporation services for small businesses, announced today that it is working with Pro Football Legends, the commercial marketing arm of the NFL Alumni Association, to offer its members business compliance services.
Through the joint initiative, members of the NFL Alumni Association will be able to access help on a discounted basis with incorporation, licensing, expansion, annual reports, registered agent and other federal, state and local business requirements for any size business.
“We chose BizFilings to help our members start and run successful businesses, because we as an organization use them ourselves to stay on top of our multistate compliance obligations,” states Joe Pisarcik, President and CEO of the NFL Alumni Association. “We know firsthand the value of their expertise. Our mission at the NFL Alumni Association is to help our members as they look to build careers beyond the NFL, and entrepreneurship is absolutely a part of the lives of many players, coaches and other associates.”
“NFL players, coaches and other professionals have many of the same innate skills that we see in entrepreneurs: leadership, passion, strategy and drive,” says Krista K. Stein, Channel Director at BizFilings. “So it’s not surprising that many people close to the game also start and run successful businesses, and it’s admirable that Pro Football Legends, under the NFL Alumni Association, has sourced a partner to help its members do that.”
BizFilings helps small business owners form a corporation, an LLC or other business structure quickly and efficiently online or by telephone. BizFilings also offers business filing and compliance products, such as registered agent services, to help businesses remain in compliance with regulations in various states and nationwide. An online incorporation pioneer, BizFilings is in its 20th year.
