Leonardo da vinci  |  the ‘OG’ innovator



Steve and Dave met at a bar in Los Angeles for one quick beer that turned into a few long ones. One is a player turned big data guru and the other is a coach turned global innovation strategist.

Gains was born that night out of conviction that the athlete is the story, and that data is jet fuel for the next wave of storytellers.
