Growing Up Big and Strong: FanDuel Raises $275M in Financing

Posted by

On Tuesday, July 14, daily fantasy sports website FanDuel Inc. announced that it brought in $275 million after closing a round of financing, bringing its total venture capital funding to $363 million.  The funding is led by private equity firm KKR, Google, and Time Warner, and the company stated that it plans to use the financing to boost customer acquisition efforts, introduce new products, and build its management team.

Additionally, the company noted that several NFL and NBA team owners participated in the funding round along with several previous FanDuel investors, including Shamrock Capital, NBC Sports Venture, Bullpen Capital, and Comcast Ventures.  According to the company, as the round of financing closes, FanDuel continues its growth, expanding its active user base by 300 percent since this time last year.

This announcement comes as FanDuel continues to have steady competition.  Its closest competitor, DraftKings Inc., is said to be close to announcing a new funding round that would give it a comparable valuation.  Meanwhile, Yahoo Inc. jumped into the fantasy sports realm last week by launching its own daily games.

  1. I’m the business owner of JustCBD Store company (justcbdstore.com) and am looking to expand my wholesale side of company. I really hope that anybody at targetdomain give me some advice 🙂 I thought that the most effective way to do this would be to connect to vape stores and cbd stores. I was hoping if anyone could recommend a dependable web-site where I can get CBD Shops B2B Marketing List I am already looking at creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. Not exactly sure which one would be the best choice and would appreciate any guidance on this. Or would it be simpler for me to scrape my own leads? Suggestions?
