A successful stock portfolio requires access to great statistical information, innovative ideas, and consistent performance, which is why I created the Stocktwits community. Building a great fantasy sports team is no different. When the stakes are high and you need to beat your opponents, you’ll need every bit of edge you can get.
That’s why we’re excited to announce our seed investment in Erik and Peter Groset’s Fantasy Sports Company. In their past lives, Erik was the co-founder and inventor of Zipbuds, an innovative solution to tangled earbud and headphone cables. Peter was a senior software engineer at San Diego’s own ecoATM. These smart, business-savvy brothers are passionate about helping fantasy sports players become real contenders.
Fantasy Sports Company develops iOS and Android apps like LineStar that make athlete research super simple, helping you win more money, more often. Their Optimal Lineups are a killer feature that help users consistently pick the best athletes based on their historical performance, stats, and match-ups. Quickly spot the trends, decide who to play, and leverage the information others may have missed.
In less than a year, Fantasy Sports’ apps have risen to become the top apps for DraftKings and FanDuel players. The fantasy sports industry is growing bigger every day. With the massive $275M Series E funding announced by FanDuel this week, and DraftKings seeking $250-$300M of their own, the playing field just got a lot more interesting. What’s more, Yahoo and CBS Sports are joining the fray. Fantasy Sports Company will be there to support players from every league.
A responsive website will launch in time for football season and support for more sports is on the way. You aren’t serious about fantasy sports until you’ve got Fantasy Sports Company’s apps in your back pocket!
