Gemini Leads FTBPro Sports Content Platform to Scale
Gemini Israel Ventures invested in FTBPro's Series A financing round alongside Battery Ventures to close out a $5.8M cash injection. FTBPro is the largest fan-generated digital media platform in football with over 20 million monthly page views, greater than 1,000 contributing fan writers with more than 200 articles being published daily covering all major leagues worldwide. The company will use this financing round to expand to key geographical markets.
FTBpro enables fans to contribute, participate, write and share their views with millions of fellow football fans. Content popularity is determined by readers who rank articles, and by FTBpro's editors who further promote the highest quality writing, topics and opinions. The company counts Bleacher Report as one of it's main competitors; Time Warner acquired Bleacher Report during the second half of 2012 to enhance its online media platform.
