to manage and simplify how they manage their sports teams, activities and interests," said TeamSnap CEO David DuPont. "Having this new investment and Foundry
Group on board as a partner allows us to accelerate our growth and keep innovating our product in exciting ways."
Team Snap has seen its customer base climb from 1 million to 5 million in
the last two and a half years with than 60 percent of its customers are using its mobile app to schedule games, check player availability, track important statistics and make mobile payments. It
