Tuesday was the culmination of 3 months of work and mentoring with the LA Dodgers R/GA Accelerator for SidePrize. It finished with a bang at Dodger’s Stadium where 10 companies presented to investors, mentors, media, and others interested in sports technology .
SidePrize hops on the growing Fantasy Football market to keep more fans engaged over more of the season. SidePrize ensures that Winners Get Paid, and Friendships Get Saved.
The presentation included the story of their growth from baseball season with 1 provider to Football season with 5 external integrations (especially impressive are those with Yahoo, ESPN) with a future goal to cover all major US Sports (adding on Basketball, NHL, and eventually MLS).
Adam Wexler also talked about active leagues, specifically, The Saratoga Elite, that has been enjoying using SidePrize. New Rivalries have formed. Involvement is higher than ever. The smack talk, and side challenges are keeping the league members involved, communicating, and winning. It will be interesting if the company continues to see this kind of interaction.
I’m an employee with them, I have a fantasy team, and I’ve introduced friends to fantasy sports. The additional taunting is great. The focus on relationships and engagement over money draws me in. Are you playing every week with your friends?
