ZenSports Closes Additional $1.46 Million in Seed Funding

Funding to Be Used for U.S. Expansion and Further Growth of Its International Presence

ZenSports, the mobile peer-to-peer sports b****** marketplace, has just announced a new $1.46M Seed round of funding to expand into the United States, as well as to continue to grow its international presence. Investors in the new round include previous investors LAUNCH (led by Jason Calacanis), as well as new investors Cube Magic Gaming and other individual angels.

After launching its peer-to-peer sports b****** app internationally in March 2019, ZenSports has been on a fast growth trajectory. Over 25,000 bets have been accepted and over $12M in b****** volume has been processed through the app. The company has continued to expand its product offering, including the launch of its own cryptocurrency token called SPORTS, the launch of its new enterprise product suite, and its expansion into Esports b******.

Most importantly, the company signed a deal last month with Strategic Gaming Management for the option to purchase the Big Wheel C***** in Lovelock, Nevada, which will allow ZenSports to operate its peer-to-peer mobile sports b****** app anywhere in the state once it gets licensed there.

According to ZenSports Co-Founder & CEO, Mark Thomas, “This new funding gives us the stability and financial backing necessary to capitalize on the tremendous opportunity in the United States sports b****** market. $5.3B was wagered on sports in Nevada last year alone (the first state we’re going into), of which about half of that was on mobile. We couldn’t be more thrilled at the opportunity presented in front of us.”

It’s also interesting that the company was only looking to raise $1M, and ended up being 46% over-subscribed for this round. Furthermore, it was able to raise this funding during a pandemic when very few sports were even being played. “We raised a bulk of this new round of funding over the summer prior to American sports even returning,” said Thomas. “That shows just how excited investors are about the opportunity and how well-positioned ZenSports is to grow within the sports b****** industry.”

With this new funding closed, ZenSports is now turning its attention to the Nevada licensing process, which should take 6 to 9 months to complete. The company has retained Lewis Roca to obtain all of the necessary licenses to operate the Big Wheel C***** and the ZenSports mobile app in the state. While the licensing process is lengthy, Thomas said that it’s well worth it because it means ZenSports will then be able to operate the mobile app anywhere in the state of Nevada once that licensing process is complete.

The company is also in talks with other casinos across the U.S. about reaching similar deals to the one with Strategic Gaming Management, which will give both ZenSports and its c***** partners a mobile sports b****** presence in their states. ZenSports has several enterprise deals in the works that it is looking to close this year, as well as continuing its international growth. “We have a lot going on and we have a terrific team to execute on all of these initiatives. We couldn’t be more excited to be a frontrunner in the $100B+ mobile sports b****** and payments world. This is just the beginning for us.”
