Co-Founders Brendan Szulik and Daniel Caldwell first developed the idea for Raleigh-based Silbo around five years ago when an umpire ruined CEO Szulik’s younger brother’s baseball game.
Silbo, a startup that matches sports officials with leagues through an online platform, has raised $1.1 million in venture capital from Triangle-based IDEA Fund Partners as well as Dantes Investments.
Raleigh tech startup Silbo wants to bring more attention to issues related to sportsmanship and the functions of a fair game between opponents.
Silbo has raised $1.3M in total. We talked with Brendan Szulik, its CEO.
Silbo CEO and Co-Founder Brendan Szulik spoke with the SII podcast to discuss how they’re trying to fix the amateur sports officiating crisis going on right now across America’s youth sports.
Silbo was formed around one simple question: How do sports officials get games? The answer was more complicated (and flawed) than we expected so we decided to build a better solution.
