ATHLINKED, LLC officially launched its website (http://www.athlinked.net) catering to current and alumni athletes. ATHLINKED provides the ability to efficiently connect athletic-minded individuals through an easy-to-use web-based platform.

ATHLINKED was developed for athletes by athletes who understand the importance of networking. Its goal is to unite athletes across the world with a professional networking platform that will serve as a primary networking forum or supplement a current alumni or social network. After years of research, the ATHLINKED founders came to the realization that a professional network for athletes exists by virtue of the millions of athletes that have competed annually in University sponsored sports (Club, NAIA, NCAA, NJCAA, other), post collegiate club sports, professional sports, endurance sports, and action sports. However, sport specific alumni groups are non-existent, disjointed or unorganized and the web-based alternatives to professional networking are not focused enough to add value to a niche like athletics.

"Athletes have a common connection that many others do not enjoy; the lessons learned in athletics are extremely applicable to the business environment, and most athletes understand the commitment and can-do attitude of their peers", said ATHLINKED CEO and co-founder, James Carl. "Our goal with ATHLINKED is to connect people who share these characteristics to build a professional community that provides opportunities for greater professional and social development. The recent advertising campaign run by the NCAA hit our point spot on -- most athletes went professional in something other than sports -- and ATHLINKED is here to harness the "characteristics" that make us who we are...athletes!"
