I became an entrepreneur in 2014 with World Athletes Company, which became BourseSportive.com and now Sport on Campus. The aim of the project is giving value to the campus and helping students move abroad. I am sharing my own experience which is helping the business to grow. I’m passionate about soccer, cinema, art and life !
I used to play for the Olympic of Marseille youth pro academy and at semi-professional level across
USA. One of my favorite quotes is from Xavier Dolan, “Tout est possible à quirêve, ose, travailleet n’abandonne jamais.”
about our concept
All of this began in 2014, after my own experience as a student-athlete in Cape Breton University, located in Nova Scotia, in Eastern Canada. This is when I began to think about the connection between students and the university. There was such a healthy atmosphere in this place: a small and tight community, friendly people, and great teammates. I had just experienced the “campus life” in Canada and how to balance both sports and academics in North America, all the while trying to reach a level of excellence in both.
Before and after this experience, I played for a couple of soccer teams in the USA. I started working on the concept and how to manage it after that.

Sport on Campus puts the campus at the center of the concept and at the heart of the student’s choice.

Special thanks to all our universities in letting us use photos and video sequences for our website.
The platform is ready and everyone interested in joining the campus online could so, if they meet the requirements.
We are proudly now working with 5 Universities. We have built our new platform that will help students to easily reach out to the universities.
During a trip in British Columbia, 2 universities (University of British Columbia and Thompson Rivers University) decided to integrate the platform with their very own online profile in order to attract more international students.
During one showcase, 17 student-athletes in soccer applied and 10 of them would be joining campuses during the summer.
About 15 of them found a campus in Canada or USA and most of them got scholarships based on their athletic skills.
