There is a Challenge.
Athletes, coaches, and administrators are making NIL buying decisions with limited knowledge in a complex new market, leaving them vulnerable to manipulations.
- PRESSURE TO PROVIDE: Almost 80% of the Power 5 conferences have already partnered with an NIL company.
- UNCERTAIN RULES: It is unclear what the finalized legislation will look like or even who will be responsible for writing it.
- STARTUPS GALORE: There are already over 150 companies launched across 10+ industries to serve the collegiate athletics market, and it’s growing.
In most buying decisions, data, case studies, and testimonials provide guidance. In a new market where these resources don’t yet exist, what navigates buying decisions?

My name is Michelle Meyer and my career over the past 15 years has been in volleyball, ranging from coaching at multiple top level D1 universities, running the high performance program for junior through collegiate athletes for USA Beach Volleyball, and co-founding a consulting company to assist various organizations on the growth and development of beach volleyball. Throughout my career in athletics, I've always strived to put the athletes first. While I’m so excited about the coming legislation and the ability for collegiate athletes to finally monetize their NIL, I worry that the changes are coming quickly and the education for current and future collegiate athletes, especially those in niche sports or competing for smaller universities, is lacking. My hope is that NIL Network can empower collegiate athletes to confidently control their Name, Image, and Likeness.
