The company has thousands of customers, ranging from Fortune 500 companies to the world’s most passionate fans. Fandeavor has extensive offerings for NFL, College Football, NASCAR and bucket list sporting events, as well as international events like the Olympics, World Cup, European Soccer and Rugby. Fandeavor’s rapid growth is driven by the team’s knowledge of the sports industry, its relationships with sports and travel suppliers, and the versatility of its software platform.
The founding team met at Zappos, where they worked in software development (Dean Curtis) and business development (Tom Ellingson) respectively. Dean was previously a software developer at Las Vegas-based real estate software startup TRIRIGA, which was acquired by IBM in 2011.
The Company’s other investors include VegasTechFund (Zappos’ CEO Tony Hsieh’s fund), Base Ventures, along with angel investors.
In January 2016, Battle Born Venture made an additional conditional commitment to Fandeavor’s next investment round.
