Yes. This campus venture is my startup! The one I have blogged about periodically. This week, we officially launched our new site:
FamilyFantasySports.com, the first fantasy sports site dedicated to family play.
Our inaugural, free leagues will coincide with the NFL’s 2008 regular season. Our leagues will be powered by STATS LLC, the world leader in sports information.
I have been working on this new venture over the past 6 months and am happy to have reached this milestone. Here is our press release (via Yahoo! news) and below is a blurb about us from Rotonation.com (a leading fantasy sports news blog).
With fantasy sports becoming more and more part of the mainstream, it is only logical for a family-orientated fantasy sports site to creep onto the horizon. Family Fantasy Sports launched today hoping to corner this new niche in the fantasy sports industry.
Further, the site puts a strong emphasis on education, health, and wellness: All prizes are orientated towards these goals. They also have a kids’ corner and grown-ups’ blog geared toward these topics.
Feel free to check out the site, sign up for our newsletter, and send me any and all feedback. I will share some of our successes and struggles on this blog as we ramp up over the next few months and execute on our strategy. Thanks.
