Ballstar streamlines league management for all basketball leagues, building the platform of player data and connecting the global basketball community of 450M players and 1B fans.

They were accepted into a prestigious accelerator, Matter, where they share the vision of the future of sports media and democratized data. Thanks to this, they can now count The NY Times, Google News Lab, and The Associated Press as partners.

Ballstar is looking forward to continue this momentum with new partners, new business, and new investment to bring them closer to their ultimate mission – to organize the world’s basketball information.

This summer they launched their site/database in conjunction with Nike NYC. The stat keeping app is designed to replace the pen and paper scoring book, with  league partners across the country. Their partners include EBC @ Rucker Park, VBL, West 4th, and many more.
