The Origin of Spry

The literal definition of ‘spry’ means the ability to move quickly, easily, and lightly. Founded in 2020 with the purpose of helping with the new rules regarding name, image, and likeness (NIL), Spry began as a third-party technical solution developed to help users to navigate the NIL landscape more easily.

After several years of success helping colleges navigate the NIL landscape with our initial product (now called SpryNIL), Spry will expand their product offerings to include SpryConnect, a general compliance product that will streamline your athletic department’s NIL processes and compliance systems

The expanded Spry platform enables compliance departments to connect with teams like never before!
