  • Pitch/Explainer Vid: Bloomberg for Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS). Explainer Video! DFS is an exploding market -- $14M in 2011 to $1B in 2014 and is estimated to reach $30B by 2020 (135% CAGR). People are making a lucrative living playing DFS and pundits are comparing it to the new era of day trading, but 85% of players experience pain points relating to: 1)time/effort required to make a competitive lineup, 2)complexity of current fragmented data sources, and 3)lack of a competitive edge. These pains are similar to those found in the finance world as well, but that industry has a plethora of tools like Bloomberg, Morningstar, Etrade, etc. DraftCrunch is introducing these fintech-type tools DFS to alleviate market pains.
  • Status: We have a proof of concept built and are now developing our MVP the launch in time for the NFL season. DraftCrunch won first runner up at two University of Texas pitch events and have conducted lengthy interviews with over 150 DFS players who validated the concept and a majority said they would pay upwards of $150/month. We're incorporated, have 4 founders, 1 employee, and 3 contractors. Only contractors are paid cash -- the rest equity.
