Entrepreneur Update: Cade Pinalto

Entrepreneur Update: Cade Pinalto

Sidelined Chicago

The idea for Sidelined Chicago was birthed in April of 2016 by Sidelined Founder Cade Pinalto and his mom, Sidelined Co-founder Christine Pinalto, after Cade experienced the heartrending loss of being permanently sidelined from the sport he loved due to a heart condition. When a high school basketball coach offered to teach Cade how to coach, Cade realized there was still a way that he could meaningfully participate in his favorite sport, even without being able to play. Cade found new joy and purpose in reconnecting with his sport and wanted to pass along that hope and opportunity to other permanently sidelined athletes. And so, the idea for Sidelined Chicago was born.

Since then, Cade and his mom have been working feverishly to get Sidelined launched. Entrenuity first reported on Sidelined in September 2016 after Cade participated in a Goodcity incubator class taught by Entrenuity Consultant Angela Jackson using the StartingUp Now Curriculum. With the help of the class, Sidelined finalized their Mission Statement, Vision Statement, Core Values, Budget, 1 Year Plan, and 3 Year Plan. They also went on to hold their first two fundraisers, designed their website, a promotional video and a product line, and officially launched on schedule in January 2017!
 
Sidelined Chicago now offers sidelined athletes a mentorship program geared to allow them to explore another path to re-engage with their passion for their sport. Qualifying mentees are matched with an experienced individual who is willing to mentor him/her in the field of coaching, sports journalism, mentoring or sports photography. Sidelined Chicago’s vision is to see athletes around the globe create within themselves a positive mindset, requiring their personal best in order to fearlessly face and overcome their challenges, both on and off the court/field. 


Congratulations, Sidelined Chicago ! Keep up the good work.
