The death of Kobe Bryant came as a shock to the world as on January 26, 2020, he, his daughter and a host of other people on the helicopter ride with them to an event at Mamba Sports Academy, crashed into the side of a mountain in California. No one survived.
Many people are mostly familiar with Kobe as an NBA champion who played for the Lakers, but he was also talented in music and acting while being big on philanthropy. He was also an author.
Some of his entrepreneurial business ventures include Kobe Inc., Granity Studios for novels and film, and Bryant-Stibel, a venture capital firm, but what the business that he was spotlighted for after his death was Mamba Sports Academy which had multiple locations.
