About the Company

Founded in 2006 (when the iPhone was but a glimmer in Steve Jobs’ eye), Teamworks started out as a messaging platform supporting collegiate football teams. Since then, we have raised three institutional rounds of funding totalling over $50M (other companies in our investors’ portfolios include Airbnb, Hubspot, Stripe, Carta, and Future), and our B2B SaaS product offerings have grown to solve complex operational workflows involving communications, scheduling, data collection, rules compliance, and other issues specific to elite athletics. In addition to providing the premier operations platform serving the world of elite athletics, we’ve also built or acquired the top solutions for athlete Academic success (Teamworks Academics), Name, Image, and Likeness (INFLCR), and sports performance and nutrition (Notemeal). Our product suite continues to grow, and we are the preeminent tech provider serving top-tier athletic organizations.
