The Green and The Gold Collective supports North Dakota State University student athletes with NIL opportunities 

Fargo, North Dakota (October, 2023) – Basepath, the leading NIL operations software company for collectives, universities, and student-athletes has been chosen as the exclusive provider for the The Green and The Gold Collective, created to support student athletes from North Dakota State University (NDSU). This collaboration aims to simplify the “Name, Image, and Likeness” (NIL) landscape by assisting student-athletes with their NIL deals and finances.

The Green and The Gold Collective is committed to championing the rights, opportunities, and well-being of North Dakota State University’s Bison athletes in the ever-evolving landscape of NIL(Name, Image, Likeness). Their mission is to empower and educate student-athletes, ensuring they make informed decisions about their NIL rights, while fostering a culture of integrity, responsibility, and community engagement.

Basepath’s platform offers a suite of financial and operational solutions tailored to the needs of student-athletes and collectives. These encompass automated task assignments and payment processing for athletes, real-time compliance dashboards for athletic department officials, and a platform for both Collective administrators and student-athletes to initiate and finalize NIL contracts.

“The automation Basepath provides is invaluable and saves us  time and effort in managing NIL tasks that would otherwise be tedious to handle manually,” said The Green and The Gold Collective Founder Jay Bartley. “Together, we are wholly dedicated to nurturing the growth of our student-athletes, equipping them with tools and resources for success in the evolving NIL landscape.”

Bartley added, “our alignment with Basepath underscores our shared commitment to advancing the financial and professional development of student-athletes.”

In this collaboration, The Green and The Gold Collective will leverage Basepath’s membership management software to establish a direct and meaningful connection between NDSU supporters and student-athletes. This innovative technology bridges the gap, allowing fans to forge deeper connections with their favorite athletes.

The Green and The Gold Collective offers a range of membership tiers uniquely designed to bolster NDSU Student-Athletes. From the lowest tier at $10 a month to the highest tier at $1,000 a month, fans can find a tier that resonates with their level of commitment.

Thomas continued, “Basepath takes immense pride in supporting The Green and The Gold Collective as they strive to expand NIL opportunities and elevate the overall student-athlete experience at NDSU.”
