Aside from being one of INFLCR’s earliest partners, Ole Miss was also the first INFLCR institution to launch a department-wide partnership, providing INFLCR’s industry-leading brand-building product to all Ole Miss teams and student-athletes, setting the stage for many similar partnerships across the country. Now, we’re excited to work them in rolling out Next Level and preparing Ole Miss student-athletes for the NIL era.
From Ole Miss:
“Ole Miss student-athletes are some of the most recognizable in sports, and soon, current Rebels will have the opportunity to capitalize on their personal brands through the Next Level program.
Through an enhanced partnership with INFLCR, Ole Miss Athletics is launching Next Level, a comprehensive name, image and likeness program that will empower its student-athletes with the knowledge and resources to elevate their brand and platform.”
As the Next Level program helps student-athletes leverage their brand reach, INFLCR’s platform, mobile app, and dedicated INFLCR Plus team will play a central role, offering educational support, social media measurement tools, fair market value assessments and other critical elements for brand growth.
“I’m thrilled about this next level partnership with Ole Miss Athletics. At the beginning of INFLCR, Ole Miss was one of the first schools to believe in our brand-building approach as one of our first paying partners, and they set the trend for more than 1,000 collegiate teams and tens of thousands of collegiate student-athletes that have used INFLCR since then,” said INFLCR CEO Jim Cavale.
“As we unveiled the new INFLCR Verified product to help student-athletes safely monetize their NIL compliantly, with live oversight for compliance, Ole Miss was right there to add both INFLCR Verified and INFLCR Plus, to ensure they’re recruiting compliantly and empowering their student-athletes with the best education. We couldn’t be more excited about tackling what lies ahead in the NIL era with Ole Miss.”
“We are excited to launch this robust program and put our student-athletes in an optimal position to advance their personal brand to its full potential,” said Keith Carter, Ole Miss Vice Chancellor for Intercollegiate Athletics. “The student-athlete experience is ever evolving, and with INFLCR’s technology and the dedication of our staff, we are expanding our commitment to developing our student-athletes with the education and resources to take advantage of these new opportunities.
“The Ole Miss brand has never been stronger, and its global impact coupled with the Next Level program sets up our student-athletes not only for success in college but in their time after graduation and beyond.”
