Robinhood Forges Strategic Partnership with KLUTCH Sports Group

Today, Robinhood and KLUTCH Sports Group unveiled a new strategic partnership that will see KLUTCH Sports Group and its Property Sales division serve as Robinhood’s agency of record for partnerships in the sports and entertainment sectors. In addition, Rich Paul, the Founder and CEO of KLUTCH Sports Group, was named a strategic brand advisor at Robinhood. In this newly formed role, Paul will advise and support Robinhood as the company expands its marketing efforts across new verticals in sports, entertainment, and media. Paul will work closely with CEO and Co-Founder Vlad Tenev to identify new partnership opportunities at the intersection of sports and entrepreneurship. 

“We’re massive sports fans at Robinhood and our customers are as well,” said Vlad Tenev, CEO and Co-Founder of Robinhood. “Working with Rich and the team at KLUTCH Sports, we will connect with fans directly through the sports, teams, and athletes they know and love.”

“At KLUTCH, we pride ourselves on doing things with intentionality and creativity,” said Rich Paul. “As we continue to grow, expanding our relationship with Robinhood was a natural next step. Their values, commitment to education, and dedication to social responsibility mirror our own, and I look forward to helping guide Robinhood as they broaden their reach into new markets and spaces.”

Paul founded KLUTCH in 2012, specializing in the representation of NBA clients. Under Paul’s leadership, the agency has not only emerged as a leader in representation, but has also significantly impacted the community and culture of sports. In the last several years, KLUTCH has diversified its portfolio, extending its reach to encompass various major sports and leagues. The agency’s success is underscored by its premier and industry-dominant offerings, showcasing its commitment to excellence across all areas.

Today’s news is the latest example of Robinhood’s efforts to expand its reach beyond the traditional tech and finance space. The team at KLUTCH Sports has already opened doors with athletes, celebrities, and entrepreneurs like Draymond Green, Trae Young, Tyrese Maxey, Ben Baller, and A’ja Wilson, and has connected Robinhood executives with like-minded teams, owners, and athletes throughout the sports world.
