Educating Athletes On How To Master New NIL Rules


The new NIL rules are shaking up the landscape of college sports and student athletes are going to need all the education they can get on how to properly take full advantage of the new regulations.

Accelerate Sports Ventures is making it their goal to teach brand building, marketing, entrepreneurship and business principles to athletes to make sure. The Voice of B2B, Daniel Litwin, asked the groups Founder Doug Fillis how athletes can leverage NIL to their benefit.

NIL education is the perfect melding of Doug’s career path – first as an executive member of IMG College, securing $400 million in media rights deals, and over 10 years of experience as an adjunct faculty member at NYU.
