About Skillz:

Skillz is the largest mobile platform that matches players around the world in fair competition for real prizes. The company helps developers build multi-million dollar game franchises by turning content into competitive social gaming properties. 

Hundreds of millions of people play and compete with others in mobile games, but the majority of game developers struggle to achieve break-through success due to rising customer acquisition costs and diluted discovery in the app stores. Skillz is changing the game by giving developers the platform, tools and support services to achieve higher player engagement, retention and revenue. Skillz works with 20,000+ game developers, leveraging its patented technology to host over 2 billion tournaments for 30 million mobile players worldwide.

Skillz is backed by leading venture capitalists, media companies, and professional sports luminaries, ranging from Liberty Global, Accomplice, Wildcat Capital, Telstra Ventures, and a founder of Great Hill Partners to the owners of the New England Patriots, Milwaukee Bucks, New York Mets, and Sacramento Kings, as well as the National Football League’s (protect-us.mimecast.com/s/Wt-SC5yEwZFZJ4XAU2uQsi?domain=nfl.com) investment arm, 32 Equity. The company has earned recognition as one of Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies (fastcompany.com/company/skillz) , CNBC’s Disruptor 50 (cnbc.com/2019/05/17/skillz-esports-platform-hooks-users-more-than-facebook-an…) , Forbes’ Next Billion-Dollar Startups (forbes.com/next-billion-dollar-startups/#6334ab494441) , Entrepreneur Magazine’s 100 Brilliant Companies (entrepreneur.com/slideshow/313595) , and the #1 fastest-growing company in America (inc.com/magazine/201709/david-whitford/2017-inc5000-skillz.html) on the Inc. 5000.
