Pro Footballers & Entrepreneurs Join Forces to Fund New Pilot Programme

Updated: Dec 29, 2021

Innumeris are proud to introduce you to our new Pilot Programme dedicated to young elite-level footballers who want to explore university opportunities in the USA. We would like to give a huge thank you to our generous sponsors who have kindly supported this pilot programme and thanks to their support, the programme is completely FREE for the 5 student-athletes that we are taking on-board! We also want to give special recognition to a particular donor who chose to remain anonymous on this occasion.

Innumeris Founder and Chairperson, Daniel Olaniyi is delighted to launch this programme and shared his vision and motivation behind this particular pilot programme:

“We all know about certain situations where footballers have dropped out of school/college to focus on their footballing career, only for them to regret that decision in the long run. This project will allow them to keep both doors open. Secondly, many of our Innumeris members have availed of scholarships that fully funded their time in the US. This has resulted in them making memories that will last a lifetime. They realised how many other athletes back in Ireland would have loved to have availed of this experience but were either not properly informed of such opportunities or felt it was too much of an expensive process to pay someone to help them with. Thanks to our generous funders, this pilot programme will help them with the process completely for free. It’s a win-win”

Innumeris Student-Athletic Coordinator, Taner Dogan (Harvard University Graduate and Dundalk FC Footballer)

“I am glad to be leading this programme to help students navigate their next steps in their academic and sporting career. We are very grateful for the support we have received from our sponsors. Their generous contributions will play a massive role in launching this pilot programme and ensuring any potential student will have the opportunity to join.”

Hear from some of our sponsors on why they decided to support this pilot programme:

Brandon Igiehon (Former student-athlete & Founder of Blacksheep Records)

“Innumeris represents a golden ticket granting opportunities for young athletes to be scholars in education in the United States while playing the sport they love. I feel that this organisation is beneficial and I fully support the mission“

Cody Pierre-Gilles (New York Stock Investor & Former personal coach to current basketball rising star Aidan Igiehon)
