Recently, FanJolt announced partnerships with four collectives, and now the experiential platform is adding an additional collective in Rising Spear and a university partnership with Middle Tennessee State University.

FanJolt, an experiential platform that launched in 2022, creates memorable interactions between fans and a curated list of premier talent to support their favorite causes. These new partnership will create opportunities on the platform and through the FanJolt app for FSU and MTSU athletes to connect directly with fans through live broadcasts, personalized messages, recorded videos and more for a fee to earn revenue from their NIL.

Portions of the proceeds for Fanjolt events go to the charity of each athlete’s choice.

Rising Spear

The Rising Spear partnership provides a white-labeled version of FanJolt branded specifically with Rising Spear colors and logos, available exclusively for FSU athletes.  This version will be available for back-to-school in August.

In the meantime, FanJolt has signed Florida State Freshman Running Back, Rodney Hill, and will be announcing more student athletes in the near future. 

“We’re thrilled to partner with Rising Spear to support their mission to provide the organization and infrastructure needed to support all FSU athletes if they desire to monetize their NIL,” says Trevor Short, founder and CEO of FanJolt. 

“Rising Spear is ecstatic to partner with FanJolt,  the number one fan engagement app in the marketplace,” says Matthew Quigley, CEO of Rising Spear. “Since day one our main goal at Rising Spear has been to help our student athletes build their personal brands that will carry them well beyond their playing careers.  Partnering with FanJolt and their wide menu of experiences  will allow our student athletes to have one-on-one connections with our fans and alumni worldwide and build their brands for the future.”

Middle Tennessee State University

The partnership with MTSU also provides a white-labeled version of FanJolt branded specifically with Middle Tennessee colors and logos, available exclusively for MT athletes.

“We’re excited to be partnering with Middle Tennessee State to support their desire to provide the resources necessary for their student athletes to monetize their NIL,” says Short.

“All of us at Middle Tennessee State University are so fired up about this new partnership with FanJolt.” says Lee De Leon.  “We are excited to be on the forefront of this new technology that FanJolt has developed to empower our student athletes with the ability to both earn revenue through promoting their NIL and to engage with our fans on social media.”

The white-labeled version of FanJolt for colleges and universities will also have several new features that will be announced soon.
