With experience for decades assisting in college sports, technology and recruiting the Bedford Agency is poised to offer its advisory service in the area of Name, Image and Likeness for collegiate student-athletes and beyond. This practice will be built through its own set of process, diligence and tools as well as a “best of breed” approach to partners that can assist our families and student-athletes in areas like financial planning, brand management, business planning and more.
Beginning in 2021 (once the NCAA legislation is complete) Name, Image and Likeness is an opportunity collegiate student-athletes and their families will be faced with. In response to numerous families who have shared their desire to have an advisor in this area, we have opened up a Advisory practice specific to Name, Image and Likeness. Now student-athletes and families will have the option of hiring or retaining the Bedford Agency to educate & advise them through the Name, Image and Likeness process. NIL will open up opportunities for these student athletes to monetize their personal brand while competing as a student athlete starting in 2021.
