From Drexel Athletics:
Drexel University has announced the formation of Dragons Edge, a comprehensive Name, Image and Likeness (NIL) educational program designed to assist student-athletes in the growth of their personal brand. Drexel is partnering with INFLCR to support student-athletes as they navigate NIL laws and policies that allow them to earn compensation for commercial and promotional purposes.
Dragons Edge is Drexel’s student-athlete development program. This program covers numerous topics that affect Drexel’s student-athletes. Education is provided on topics such as branding, compliance, entrepreneurial and business training and development, financial management, collaboration and negotiation. The athletic department is partnering with other campus academic departments and units, including the LeBow College of Business and the Close School of Entrepreneurship, to prepare Drexel student-athletes to navigate the new landscape in college athletics.
“This is an exciting time for Drexel Athletics and for our student-athletes,” said Drexel Director of Athletics Maisha Kelly. “We look forward to providing our student-athletes the necessary resources and support to capitalize on the new NIL opportunities. Drexel’s robust academic colleges and programs provide our student athletes with access to experts, platforms and curriculum where student-athletes can acquire business skills, shape their professional and personal brand not only allowing them to leverage themselves in the NIL space but to be equipped with lifelong tools.”
INFLCR provides college athletic departments with the content delivery and compliance platform to assist NCAA athletics programs in the management and monitoring of student-athlete Name, Image and Likeness activities. INFLCR ensures student-athletes are provided the tools and resources to participate in opportunities from NIL legislation.
INFLCR Verified enhances the student-athlete experience by offering a comprehensive solution for responsible brand-building on social media, as well as a fully compliant path to external commercial activity from NIL.
Drexel is partnering with INFLCR to help educate and prepare staff and student-athletes for new opportunities from current NIL legislation. INFLCR provides educational videos and services to assist student-athletes in brand strategy, compliance, best practices, compliance and more.
