HORROW SPORTS VENTURES

From its inception, Horrow Sports Ventures has been a leading facility development advisor to teams, leagues, universities, government agencies, and not-for-profit organizations. Shortly before the millennium, RICK HORROW realized that he was spending a significant portion of his time doing media interviews to explain facilities financing, public-private partnerships, and infrastructure project implementation to the general public. What’s more, he realized he enjoyed it. What followed was a carefully orchestrated buildup of Horrow’s media portfolio, comprising regular weekly television and radio segments, his own national radio show,  and partnerships with such online media sources provide weekly branded columns.
