Verse Gaming will join Sportradar’s Acceleradar program, the company’s accelerator for innovative startups in sports technology.This new partnership makes Sportradar the exclusive live sports data provider for Verse Gaming. Verse’s iOS Application is scheduled for a Fall 2021 release.“We couldn’t be more thrilled to partner with a renowned industry leader in Sportradar, and to gain the insight and tools provided by the Acceleradar program. We appreciate Sportradar’s recognition of Verse’s innovation as an early stage startup. What we are building here at Verse, a social-first betting experience, is unique and overdue in the market. We are excited that our new partners see our vision, and we are just getting started,” said Verse Gaming CEO Dan Zimmermann.“Sportradar is the perfect technology partner for us. This gives us the ability to build features that were only white-board concepts just months ago,” said CTO David Rosen. This is a great step forward for Verse as the NY-based startup built by former Barstool Sports Syracuse viceroy interns looks to debut its P2P Gaming product later this year. Verse is led by co-founders Dan Zimmermann and David Rosen, who developed Verse’s early vision at the Blackstone Launchpad powered by Techstars on Syracuse’s campus. Both 2020 graduates, Dan and David have turned a once-dorm room project into a highly efficient sports technology startup. Now based in Brooklyn, NY, Verse will turn their sights to a summer of testing and fundraising ahead of a Fall product launch.For more information on Sportradar’s Acceleradar program, visit here.
