about Lucra Sports

Lucra Sports is a peer-to-peer sports gaming platform that sits uniquely at the intersection of sports betting and fantasy sports. Lucra allows users to create player vs. player contests in which they compete against friends for real money. Customization of players and stats allows users to be more creative (including cross-sport contests) than existing options in the marketplace. Social features are the heart of Lucra and allow you to share contests and smack talk with friends and fans. Lucra is founded upon transparency, with fees lower than any sportsbook and an easy-to-use platform that users can trust.

After closing Series A funding in April 2022, it is time to ramp up the team and take advantage of the early lead we have in our space. Get in the game!

why we are so excited:

Space: Peer-to-peer sports betting combines several attractive (sports betting) and under-penetrated (peer-to-peer gaming) markets. With a nascent, but evolving, regulatory and legal landscape, the opportunities for us will only grow.

Stage: We are a series A venture-backed company after a very successful seed round (May-21) and product launch (Sep-21). We need to ramp up the team and take advantage of the early lead we have in our space.

Team: We are a small team composed of repeat founders, ex-NFL Management, ex-Microsoft, ex-Goldman Sachs.

Investor Base: We are backed by some of the biggest names in sports, including NBA/MLB team owners, professional athletes and top-tier venture funds.
