It all started with a deep love for fantasy sports.
Jason Robins, Paul Liberman, and Matt Kalish thought season-long fantasy was great. But daily fantasy could be better. They were friends and coworkers. Soon they’d be cofounders.
Within a few years, DraftKings, the company they’d launch from a spare bedroom in Paul’s Watertown, Massachusetts apartment, was an internationally known brand on its way to forever revolutionizing how fans engaged with sports.
Since the daily fantasy sports platform launched in 2012, DraftKings has grown, and grown fast. Now it offers an immersive sports entertainment experience.
In April 2020 DraftKings began trading on the Nasdaq Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol “DKNG when it closed its business combination with the publicly traded special acquisition company Diamond Eagle Acquisition Company and SBTech, an international turnkey provider of cutting-edge sports betting and gaming technologies. The combined company became the only vertically integrated pure-play sports betting and online gaming company based in the United States with a focus on the American sports fan.
