While living in Greece for several years as a child, Nick Kalisperis attended his first pro soccer game with his father. He was immediately hooked. Returning to the U.S., Nick went on to play soccer in college while studying business. He opened his first business in 1996 and has been a successful entrepreneur ever since. Nick attributes much of his academic and business success to the physical activity of soccer; he realized that he did better in school and led a healthier, happier lifestyle during soccer season. Wanting to share his passion for soccer with others, Nick co-founded Suárez Soccer School with Témoc Suárez, developing technical training programming to give children the tools not only to become better soccer players but to make healthier life choices. Today, Nick manages operations for GenMove, enabling him to deliver health education to a larger audience.
