At the beginning of his professional basketball career, the very first thing Anthony bought with his earnings was a investment property in 2009 for $80,000.

From there, Anthony founded 356 Ventures where is a successful investor in many companies across multiple sectors including: Tech, Media, Retail, Direct to Consumer, Software, E-Commerce, Group Fitness and more.
