The sport analytics community was out in full force last Friday for our second SportCon. More than 1,300 registered or joined the waitlist for the Feb. 2 event at Optum in Eden Prairie, featuring more than 70 top experts from pro sports, academia and tech. Speakers included representatives from many of our local pro sports teams, including the Minnesota Twins, United FC, Vikings and Wild.
Thank you to all of the speakers, sponsors, volunteers and participants for making Big Data Tech 2017 a success. More than 900 participated in the this huge event, and the feedback has been astounding.
As our Big Data Tech conference approaches, which features another one of our "Startup Showcase" sessions, we thought it would be interesting to look back at past participants and identify those that were successful in raising funding after they participated.
