Product/Service Summary

Switch-Hit is developing a fantasy sports product anchored the social nature of this activity via a sports-centric social setup, akin to a closed facebook group. The setup enables friends to easily communicate & poke fun at each other by use of text, hi-fives, pictures, & videos and spur social activity by providing context aware social updates.

How are we different?

Current fantasy sports products provide functional aspects to manage teams but the banter and communication amongst friends takes place via “generic/context unaware” tools such as texts, calls, emails, facebook & whatsapp groups. These products, from the pre-social era, thus, lose out on the network/lock in that comes with a stronger social piece.
