NIL is bigger than endorsement deals. This is about economic empowerment for young black men & women whose talents + culture have created value for others. Our time is now

Thomas Fields’ story is one of true perseverance. From tearing his ACL 4 times and having to give up on his NBA dream [to Shark Tank], he never stopped grinding and moving forward. Super cool product [Grind Basketball] #SharkTank

I'll never forget when I got suspended for 3 games in college for having “co-founder of X” in my Instagram bio.
This was long overdue student-athletes shouldn’t have to choose between athletics and entrepreneurship

It shouldn't be a surprise to anyone that athletes are incredible additions to the cap table. Huge personal brand to lift the business - Access to literally anyone you need - Lots of personal, long term capital - Empathy for working hard to build great things
@andre Iguodala. may be widely recognized as a three-time NBA Champion and NBA Finals MVP, but he is at the forefront of venture capital and technology off the court.

NIL is more than how you perform on the field. As a D3 athlete, I started my own company and put endless hours into building a brand on Instagram that I couldn’t monetize, until today. I am excited to see what the future holds.
