ScoreStream Nabs $2M For Local Sports Crowdsourcing
Wish you had someplace you could get real time updates on local and high school sports? San Diego-based ScoreStream said today that it has raised $2M in a seed financing round, to bring scores, pictures, and other information about high school and local sports online. The startup--led by technology startup vet Derrick Oien--said the funding was led by Sinclair Digital Ventures, a division of Sinclair Broadcast Group. Also participating in the funding was Avalon Ventures, New Enterprise Associates, and angels, including Kevin Plank (Under Armour) and Paul Palmieri (Millennial Media). ScoreStream's platform uses the crowd to offer up real-time local sports scores, photos and social conversations for television, newspaper, radio, and Internet publishers. Oien was previously the CEO of Chumby; ScoreStream is part of the EvoNexus incubator.
