The Name, Image, Likeness (NIL) industry is booming. More than 150 new NIL technology companies are now in play as collegiate student-athletes became able to profit from endorsement deals and monetize social media accounts, as well as become entrepreneurs, on July 1 of last year. With no clear NCAA guidelines or state regulations in place, most liken the NIL market to the Wild West where anything goes! Many are turning to NIL startups to understand better and navigate the space.

This WiST Presents: How I Got Into Sports Tech panel discussion features the leaders shaping education and technology for NIL. They’ll share their journeys to the NIL landscape, roles, and domain expertise. Join us to hear from Michele Meyer, San Diego State University NIL Coordinator and NIL Network Founder, Issa Hall, Founder & CEO of JRZY, and Danielle Tate, Senior Partnerships Manager at INFLCR. With Michelle, Issa, and Danielle specializing in a unique aspect of the very interconnected NIL Tech landscape, this panel discussion will shed light on the key stakeholders in the NIL Tech world, the current challenges for student-athletes and businesses, and how our panelists are solving these problems.
