GW's NIL Collective: Friends of George

https://fogcollective.com/about/

Friends of George was created with one mission in mind – to empower George Washington student-athletes to achieve their greatest potential in the classroom, on the playing field, and in life. With the passing of legislation allowing student-athletes to profit from their name, image and likeness, Friends of George leverages the collective power of the alumni and fans to equip student-athletes with the tools and resources necessary for them to excel both during and beyond their time in Washington, DC. More importantly, we seek to help student-athletes to use NIL to maximize its impact on the community, and to do so the right way, without ever compromising the values of the university and the legacy of all those who have wore the buff and blue in the past in the past.

Here is the official release from the school:

Re: GW's NIL Collective: Friends of George

Well, that's a start.  I have no idea about the founder, his business reputation, or the financial structure of the collective.  Aahil may be a whiz kid and is due reasonable compensation for his work, but his searchable credentials online are thin and I'd think many would want to see a business plan before providing any funding.  What type of work does the NBA or NBAPA do before agents are certified?  I'd certainly appreciate the thoughts of others if they know more.

What are you all doing that results in "done"? I don't really see an ask in the press release. Happy to help out!

I'm glad to see this, but it's pretty confusing to me. How does the NFT thing work? I don't quite get that part. And I guess there are a couple businesses listed at the end, but I thought it was something where the students appear in ads or something? Maybe I'm just not that clear on how NILs work.

Ok—i could not access site earlier, but they’ve got legit folks on thé Board.  In general, an NIL collective cannot have an official connection with the university—but exist to provide more depth in NIL deals for student athletes.  This is great news to get off the ground!

And no e win tonight!
