Nebraska Athletics recently partnered with Opendorse to create the first-ever program designed to help individual student athletes build their personal brands. The program, being called Ready Now, will afford all 650-plus Nebraska student athletes the opportunity to improve their personal brands on social media so they can maximize their earning potential once NIL legislation is ultimately enacted.
I wrote about this program on Forbes when it was first announced, but in this episode I was able to chat with Opendorse co-founder and CEO Blake Lawrence about what his company currently does with professional athletes and how his platform will benefit student athletes as NIL legislation is enacted. We discussed how Opendorse currently works with its approximately 75 collegiate partners and how the Nebraska partnership takes that to the next level. From providing actionable data to matching athletes with brands, we chatted about everything Opendorse does and how student athletes will be able to maximize their monetization opportunities once NIL legislation is enacted.
