Sleeperbot, which has raised about$ 2M in seed fund from Birchmere VC and Expa, and boasts hundreds of thousands of users, calls itself Slack for sports.
Its essentially an app( and website) that lets sports fans have conversations around different topics theyre passionate about. These debates happen in channels some of which are created by the company and are general topics like fiction advice, and some are created by users like an Eagles fan club.
And now they are adding another feature that is sure to make it even more useful for sports fans fantasy athletics. Starting with NFL this season, Sleeperbot is adding support for season-long fantasy athletics right inside its app.
This move induces total sense because season-long fantasy athletics, unlike daily fantasy sports, is a very social activity.
