About NIL Network

by michelle

There is a Challenge.

Athletes, coaches, and administrators are making NIL-related decisions with limited knowledge in a complex new market, leaving them vulnerable to manipulations.

In most decisions, data, case studies, and testimonials provide guidance. In a new market where these resources don’t yet exist, what navigates decisions?

NIL Network Provides a Solution.

NIL Network is advocating for transparency, integrity, and collaboration from NIL companies in this developing industry.  

We are a platform that delivers valuable content, guidance, and resources to athletes, coaches, and administrators to guide NIL-related decisions in the new market surrounding collegiate athletes’ ability to monetize their Name, Image, and Likeness.
