Evaluating players has long been one of the most important tasks faced by leagues and coaches. However, curating and organizing player data has consistently proved to not only be time-consuming, but also very difficult.
The need for a better system was obvious to Todd Larson, who was asked to help create a tool to organize and rank player data for a local soccer club. Calling on his previous experience in decision analytics, Todd delivered a product that was desperately needed by countless sports organizations.
Todd founded TeamGenius with the hope that coaches would no longer need to rely on the typical eye-test used for evaluating players. Eliminating the pen and clipboard process, TeamGenius provides an easy way to evaluate and rank players based on performance, all from the convenience of a mobile app.
Officially co-founded by three team members, TeamGenius has achieved integration in baseball, soccer, hockey, volleyball and football, building a customer base from D.C. to youth soccer in Australia.
TeamGenius will look to continually grow its customer base over the coming year, while also securing enough investment to find a full-time home for the startup and grow the team.
Interested in bringing TeamGenius to your league? Come visit Todd and the TeamGenius team on Sept. 19 at the upcoming Beta.MN / Showcase event. The event will be held at the Target Commons from 5:30-8pm. Tickets are running out, but you can still secure your spot!
