The five finalists taking part in the SBC First Pitch are:

StatX Sports: Supplier of mission-critical products, data and odds to sports leagues and teams, betting operators and media companies.

Linemate Inc: Building a sports gaming research engine for everyday sports fans – an app to discover, analyse and select their best sports plays, similar to booking travel through Expedia.

EdgeSports: A free sports betting app that provides picks through the use of AI and machine learning algorithms, minimising the time and effort needed to make informed betting decisions.

THNDR: Making competitive, connected play possible with frictionless, peer-to-peer payment APIs, with gamified rewards, social competitive play and high-frequency wagering.

SBC’s esteemed judging panel features Rob Duboff (Velo Partners), Adam Krejick (Eilers & Krejcik Gaming), Lloyd Danzig (Sharp Alpha Advisors), Cassandra Lee (Bettor Capital) and Melissa Blau (iGaming Capital).

Sue Schneider, VP of Growth & Strategy at SBC, says: “The calibre of submissions received for the SBC First Pitch has been truly impressive, showcasing the depth of innovation within the industry. Each of the five finalists brings a unique and captivating narrative to the table, so I think we will have a great competition this year.

“Huge thanks to all the sponsors contributing to the prize fund and to the panel of judges who will assist us in selecting our winner this year.”

The victorious startup will receive a prize bundle valued at over $40,000 to support its development and expansion plans.
