I’m currently the Project Management and Marketing Intern at numberFire, the next generation sports analytics platform. We take the unstructured and misleading data that exists all around sports and mine it for unprecedented insight that allows us to predict player and team performance better than any competitor. We then sell those insights and projections to consumers, media outlets, teams, and leagues. Currently, numberFire beats its competitors 61% of the time, and the Vegas NFL odds 58% of the time.
The startup’s seed money initially came from winning “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire.” Later investors include RRE Ventures. It’s been through TechCrunch Disrupt and Entrepreneurs Roundtable Accelerator and currently partners with ESPN, Bleacher Report, SB Nation, Sports Illustrated, Thrillist, and StubHub.
