  • Company Description
    Boom Shakalaka is an in-game fantasy sports product, pushing real-time questions to users (e.g. Will Adam Vinatieri make this 50-yard field goal? Will A-Rod hit a homerun in this at-bat?) and allowing them compete with others. We are building this product towards the evolution of fantasy sports. We are located at Grand Central Tech in the heart of NYC as part of GCT’s 1-year accelerator program. We’re backed by prominent Silicon Valley and NYC investors who funded and helped build Electronic Arts, Zynga, and Playdom. Co-founders Stephen Murphy and Assaf Einat have 10 years of experience in casino gaming and technology. They are both graduates of the Stanford Graduate School of Business.
