#298 – AK Ikwuakor – Embrace The Journey

AK Ikwuakor, also known as Coach AK, is a former top ten world-ranked athlete (University of Oregon Track and Field), entrepreneur, educator, consultant and strategic storyteller who has traveled to 30+ countries working with students, professional athletes, coaches, governmental agencies, celebrities, CEO’s, employees of Fortune 100 companies, scholars, victims affected by terrorism and even community leaders from around the world through his entrepreneurial ventures. His endeavors have included work in sports diplomacy, storytelling, athlete performance, fashion, virtual reality, leadership development, global education, business coaching, as well as several others.

He has led an unorthodox path which began by narrowly missing the 2008 Olympic games to working at top educational institutions such as Phillips Exeter Academy and The St. Paul’s School, to now founding a fashion company for athletes. Coach AK has collaborated or worked with companies such as Raymond James, RBS, Biogen, Dear World, Duke Basketball, NYU, Xavier, Americans Promoting Study Abroad, Dermelogica, Jimmy V Foundation, the State Department, WeWork, ImpactHUB, and Oath.

Through his work he has been featured in Sports Illustrated, Nike, Yurbuds, Women’s Health, Sony, Fox Sports, The Doctors, and was even a contestant on the Fox game show, Are you Smarter than a 5th Grader? with his triplet brother. (Unfortunately, they were not smarter than a 5th Grader.)

Coach AK is the founder of ELETE Styles which is a made to measure clothing provider for athletes and working professionals, an international speaker, and also advises several startups around the globe. He currently resides in Boston with his partner, Yasmin, and 7-year-old daughter, Haiven. Coach AK enjoys rock climbing, standup comedy and traveling.
