Ex-Yankee captain Derek Jeter investing in anti-bullying app

NJ.com Logo

Former Yankees' shortstop Derek Jeter has kept plenty busy since he finished his 20-year career in the Bronx last September.

He founded The Players' Tribune (which just rounded up $9.5 million in funding), hung with Hideki Matsui in Japan, and found himself at the Cricket World Cup in Australia a few months back.

And not to mention his imprint in the publishing world—Jeter Publishing, part of Simon & Schuster that publishes non fiction for adults and kids.

Now, he's got a new project: with his youth charity, Turn 2 Foundation, Jeter's partnering with a startup tech company called StopIt, focusing on anti-bullying for kids.

(Jeter also personally invested in the startup.)
