Aug 23, 2020

I had the pleasure of sitting down with current CEO and Co-founder of Super Heroic, Jason Mayden.  Jason and I met briefly while he was in Raleigh, NC to speak at the city’s Small Business Week Kick-Off where I brought my sons to hear his inspiring message of entrepreneurship, design, fatherhood and play. In his previous role at Nike, Jason Mayden oversaw the design and execution of all conceptual products, data driven
innovations and inline lifestyle and performance product for Jordan Brand, as the Senior Global Design
Director.

During his 13+ year career at Nike, Mayden led and contributed to the creation of innovative sport performances products for athletes and cultural icons such as Carmelo Anthony, Chris Paul, Russell Westbrook, Derek Jeter, and Michael Jordan.

Super Heroic Inc. a business focused on creating quality play performance product, technology and services for elementary school aged children and families.

Jason and I discuss;

  • His experience growing up in Chicago and the inspiration of the Michael Jordan era
  • His experience and evolution while at Nike
  • His Passion for gym shoes…tennis shoes, kicks, you get it 🙂
  • Leaving Nike and starting his own brand, Super Heroic
  • Magic Johnson becoming an investor
  • Best business advice
  • and much more!!
