About Fans Meet Idols
Fans Meet Idols was founded in July 2020 to help Student-Athletes (SA) monetize their Name, Image and Likeness (NIL) with Fans.
Fans do not judge an individual based on how many followers they have, or how big their brand is. They are a Fan because of who the Athlete already is.
We believe the broadest opportunities for the majority of Student-Athletes to capitalize on NIL is through Fan Engagement, which is why we created this Direct-to-Fan marketplace. We have launched merch to allow Student-Athletes to connect to Fans with physical goods in addition to digital packages.
OUR MISSION it to help Student-Athletes become Entrepreneurs while conditioning behaviors of Following the Rules and Giving Back to their Community.
We are led by a seasoned team of professionals with expertise in Collegiate Athletics, Compliance, NIL, eCommerce, Finance, Technology and Internet Law.
We're based in Atlanta, GA.
