Pythian and "Charch" first joined forces to launch Fanball in the 1990's. After exiting the business in 2005, Pythian went on to launch SportsData, a real-time stats business which was later sold to Sportradar. Meanwhile Charch launched LeagueSafe, an online wallet system for fantasy sports leagues dues.
The two have re-joined forces, and currently operate a multitude of fantasy sports games under one common platform, SportsHub Games Network (www.shgn.com). Over the last three years, SportsHub Games Network has acquired several fantasy sports companies and more recently developed a daily fantasy platform ("Fanball").
Topics include their experiences with starting and growing their past and current technology businesses, including
- venture capital fundraising
- mergers & acquistions
- the constantly changing legal landscape of online fantasy sports and online sports gaming.
The event is at the Hutton House, a new premier, luxurious event venue located just minutes west of downtown Minneapolis - tucked away in an unexpected corner of Medicine Lake.
