Via an app, Acorns connects to a credit or debit card, and each time an Acorns user makes a purchase, the amount of the transaction rounds up to the next whole dollar; Acorns then invests the remainder into one of several pre-established investment portfolios.

Niyama Sol

Niyama Sol was founded on the principles of yoga by yogis Allison Hart and Cristina Osorio. Their leggings and other apparel are made from recycled plastic bottles, and they hug the body like a second (and very soft) skin. Allison and Cristina conceived Niyama Sol around the five niyamas—the five practices essential to progressing on the path in yoga—and they base their colorful designs on their personal passions for art, music, nature, yoga, and spirituality. Fashion meets fitness meets sustainability.

Presidente USA

Alex Rodriguez became Chairman of Presidente USA in January 2020 via a partnership with beer giant Anheuser-Busch InBev. Having a leadership role in building Presidente—founded in 1935 by Cerveceria Nacional Dominicana in the Dominican Republic—is particularly meaningful to Alex because he is the son of Dominican immigrants to the U.S. Alex and Anheuser-Busch InBev, which acquired Presidente in 2012, are working to make Presidente a top seller in major markets across the U.S. and showcase its quality and craftsmanship.

Alma Mater Footwear

Alma Mater Footwear founder Eric Sarin met Alex Rodriguez during the early days of developing his startup. Alex loved the hand-crafted sneakers, so Eric sent him a pair. After Alex wore his Alma Maters when he proposed to Jennifer Lopez on the beach in the Bahamas in 2019, that proposal picture went viral, and Alma Mater took off bigtime. Today, Alex has a line of Alma Mater sneakers called 696—the number of home runs he hit in his MLB career—and more lines to come.
