Company Overview

RotoQL is a B2C sports data and analytics start-up, based in NYC, that services three customer segments: daily fantasy players, season-long fantasy players, and sports bettors. Our customers pay us a monthly subscription to access a a suite of tools and data. We are a seven-figure revenue business, having acquired 200,000 users and over 15,000 paying customers through our mobile-first platform. We has raised nearly $5M to date from a strategic set of individuals (i.e. David Stern, Jim Pallotta, Ralph Topping) and institutions (i.e. Azure Capital, Don Best, Boston Seed Capital). 

We most recently closed a $3.25M seed round to, as described in this article in Legal Sports Report, to launch our sports betting data/analytics product. One of our investors, Benjie Cherniak (President at DonBest), commented: "RotoQL has established itself as a leader in the B2C fantasy space, as evidenced by their rapid growth and passionate user base. RotoQL is perfectly positioned to penetrate the B2C sports betting space via their unique mobile-first offering, BetQL. This is a textbook example of the right product at the right time in the right place." 

To elaborate on Benjie's comments, our rapidly growing user base of highly engaged fantasy players and sports bettors positions us to be a key ingredient in the US sports betting ecosystem. First, our products educate sports bettors which in turn increases their lifetime value to operators. Second, we are gathering lots of data on our users (i.e. preferences around sports/players/teams) which can be used to effectively drive traffic to select sports books.
