Work on the new era of digital culture.

We strive to recognize and reward culture creators with the latest web3 philosophies around ownership.

HEIR presents a new opportunity for athletes (and creators) to engage with their most loyal supporters, define new revenue streams and digital enterprises, and position their brands for the future, into the Web 3.0 universe.

Heir Inc.’s mission is to provide the next evolution of digital culture to the world. We aim to redefine the perspective and functionality of digital culture while creating benefits for original culture creators and those who consume it early.

Our founding team brings experience from the White House, Robinhood, Nike, and Jordan Brand and has worked with athletes and entertainers including Steph Curry, Michael Jordan, Beyonce, Travis Scott, and The Weeknd.

HEIR is backed by Thrive Capital (investors in Instagram, Stripe, Slack, Robinhood, Github) and pro athletes and has raised $10M in seed funding.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We are also required to measure our progress toward having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with disabilities. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had a disability. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we ask all of our employees to update their information at least every five years.

Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past.
