Flick, a sports chat platform, has raised $5 million in a Series A funding round. To date, the company — started by FanDuel founders Nigel Eccles and Rob Jones — has raised $9 million.
With the new funding, Flick will look to extend its current upward trajectory by expanding into sports betting. Since May, the platform has reportedly grown its users 45% month-to-month.
Used in 180 countries, Flick allows influencers to “authentically engage” with fans during games through live chats, quizzes and questions.
