Matthias Metternich

Smell of Success

“You want to find a partner who is hard-wired to think about what it takes to build something and athletes and their journey are actually really good proxies for what it's like to build a startup. You know, these are individuals who have willed themselves through their sheer tenacity and talent, but a lot of hard work, a lot of grind, a lot of unglamorous moments working both individually and as a team to stand out and be the best that they can be under lots of pressure.”

In this episode of the SLN Podcast, Matthias Metternich, CEO of Art of Sport, discusses how he co-founded America’s fastest growing men’s skincare brand with the late Kobe Bryant. Matthias is no stranger to entrepreneurship having started four companies and now scaling Art of Sport to nearly 15,000 retail doors in 2021. Mathias unpacks several points in the interview, including what attracted Kobe and the founding team to this market. Why Art of Sport decided to list on Amazon right away, Mark Cuban's recent investment into the company, and how Art of Sport plans to power every gym bag and locker room in the country.

European Super League Flops Even Before a Kickoff 

The Ringer breaks down what happened as a collection of elite soccer teams tried, and spectacularly failed at its vision of conjuring a new league that would have upended the current state of the sport. While the article looks at what lessons the teams may or may not have learned, Heineken took advantage of the moment to offer at least one lesson of its own (right).
