Fort Lauderdale, FL, July 7th, 2021 – A partnership that just makes [financial] sense. Athliance partners with Didier Occident to bring ‘bite-size’ pieces of financial literacy to its NIL Opportunity Management and Education Platform. Occident is well known for his ‘Secure The Bag’ (STB) Financial Literacy Program, working with prominent universities across the country.
Athliance aims to provide the best possible NIL Opportunity Management Software available, but also to provide extremely valuable educational resources in its tech-forward platform. Name, Image, Likeness provides student-athletes access to opportunities to make as much money as they are willing to work for, something that has never been available to them before. Therefore, having quick and easy access to financial literacy modules that they can watch on their own time is extremely advantageous.
