Aug 28, 2013

SEND ANOTHER EMAIL CLOSE share According to an SEC filing today, TechStars class of 2010 alumnus StarStreet  has raised $1.45 million in equity funding. The investors are as yet unnamed, but past funding has come from SV Angel, Jar Capital, Don McLagan, Andrew Blachman, and Ben Littauer. The announcement has come at a perfect time for StarStreet, as the NFL season kicks off next Thursday with the Ravens taking on the Broncos at Mile High. "We're expecting a ton of growth this NFL season. We're about 10x bigger than we were same time last year," said StarStreet CEO Jeremy Levine, "We are going to be expanding, hiring, offering larger tournaments and blowing out our relationship with Playboy for more live tournaments at the Playboy Mansion. " Just this past Saturday, StarStreet hosted the "Playboy Fantasy Baseball Championship" at the Playboy mansion where the winner took home a sweet $75,000. The Cambridge-based startup is running a similar contest for the football season  with the Championship being held on December 15 at Hef's house in Los Angeles. The first qualifier rounds for the tournament begin on Sunday, September 8, with two qualifiers will be held every Sunday thereafter until week 14 of the NFL season. StarStreet, gives users the ability make real money playing fantasy sports including MLB, NHL, NFL, NCAA Football and Basketball (in March for the Madness), on a day-to-day basis . You can draft a team and follow all their games that day, or you can play day to day by just choosing individual players that go head to head (what is called a "Pick '5" league). To date, StarStreet has raised $2 million. Levine told Bostinno that this current round of funding will be over "very soon" and that he expects to raise the full offering valued at $2 million.
