About

Experienced guides for the NIL journey

Values

It is our mission to guide, inform and protect coaches, administrators, student-athletes and their families to help them thrive on their NIL journey.

01

Objective information, not exploitation

Our goal is to give everyone involved in NIL decisions – the student-athletes, parents, coaches and administrators – high-quality, timely information. We are not a sports talent agency looking to strike representation deals with your children.

02

Tailored content for all stakeholders

We believe strongly that student-athlete success requires a team approach. Parents, coaches and administrators are all part of the same team, but have different roles to play. Our dedicated research team wakes up every day focused on providing the objective information that each team member needs, tailored to their unique perspective.

03

Committed to every student’s journey

We recognize that life is a journey and no two paths are exactly the same. Not every student will go on to compete in college athletics, much less be the rare one that can eventually go pro. And that’s OK. We believe our NIL content can help any student understand the importance of building and managing a personal brand as they pursue a career in whatever field is right for them.

It is our mission to guide, protect and inform coaches, administrators, student-athletes and their families to help them thrive on their NIL journey.
