about Lucra Sports

Lucra Sports is a peer-to-peer sports gaming platform focused on providing fans with a safer, more social, and quicker touch way to engage with friends around sports than existing sports betting or fantasy offerings, live for iPhone users. On our platform, users create contests around player performances across a variety of sports and set their own terms based on comprehensive publicly available data that we provide instead of playing against the House. Social is at the core of what we built at Lucra- you choose to send contests to a friend, a group, or the Lucra public feed, follow other friends’ activity, view head-to-head stats and group leaderboards and smack talk with friends or groups. All of this takes just seconds, a far more quick-touch process than any existing fantasy sports offerings.

why we are so excited:

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

Stage: We are currently raising our Series A after a very successful seed round and product launch. We need to ramp up the team and take advantage of the early lead we have in our space.

Team: We are a 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.
