The Basics

Due Dilligence

WHAT WE LIKE

  • Market & growth: In a short time, the NIL market has ballooned to a valuation of over $1B, as brands place a premium on micro-influencers.

    • With multiple revenue streams from brands, universities, and collectives, MOGL is well positioned to tap this market.

  • 📈 Customer Acquisition: MOGL’s acquisition strategy involves universities or collectives purchasing the platform, allowing the onboarding of many athletes all at once, instead of one-by-one.

POTENTIAL RISKS

  • 🤷🏼 Market uncertainty: The novelty of the NIL policy introduces market instability and the risk of future regulatory changes that might impact MOGL’s operations.

  • 🔄 Bypassing the platform: What’s stopping a brand with reach from promoting an ambassador program without MOGL.
