His educational background from the University of Notre Dame and active involvement with its Young Alumni Board have further cemented his status as a forward-thinking entrepreneur dedicated to creating an ethical and rewarding ecosystem for brands, universities, collectives and athletes.

Mr. Syal's career trajectory is marked by significant milestones that showcase his expertise in connecting athlete influencers with brand marketers for content creation, social promotion and endorsements. Since co-founding MOGL in 2019, he has been instrumental in developing a platform that not only enables brands to build awareness for their offerings and connects athletes to lucrative opportunities but also provides software solutions now trusted by some of the country's largest athletic departments to manage NIL programs effectively. Prior to MOGL, Mr. Syal served as a senior strategy associate at IHS Markit (now S&P Global) from 2020 to 2021 and as an analyst at Lexington Partners from 2019 to 2020.

He graduated with a Bachelor of Business Administration in management consulting and sociology from the University of Notre Dame in 2017 where he was awarded the Student Service Award at graduation. He completed his high school education through the Seton Scholars Program at Seton Hall Preparatory School in New Jersey. The support from his family and the Notre Dame network played an integral role in his ability to navigate the corporate world successfully and ultimately launch MOGL with a clear mission to democratize access to athletes for marketing campaigns.
