ADVANCE Launches Athlete National Sports Business Clearinghouse

The ANSBC offers a four-step certification for NIL Professional Service Providers, Third Parties and Sponsors.


The ANSBC promotes transparency and protection for athletes throughout the entire NIL ecosystem by providing a centralized vetted directory and resource hub for collectives, marketplaces, sponsors, agents, service providers, conferences & athletic departments.

As a comprehensive clearinghouse solution, ANSBC aggregates information, performs proprietary due diligence and offers ongoing monitoring of third parties to accelerate partnership decision-making, efficiency and confidence on behalf of athletes, families, and their schools.

“This is all about diligence,” said Courtney Altemus, Founder and Managing Partner of ADVANCE. “As the protective barriers for athletes in the business of college sports come down, financial risk grows greater and greater. Athletes need to know who they can trust, and adequate diligence is much deeper than internet reviews or word of mouth. Service providers want a way to distinguish themselves from competitors who may not be trustworthy. Our proprietary risk assessment and certification process is a solid step toward diligence in this pivotal time. This is the solution.”

As part of the launch, ADVANCE will offer membership to the NIL COALITION, an alliance of school and conference administrators who prioritize the protection and overall safety of student-athletes in NIL and transparency in the deal space.
