MORRISVILLE, N.C., August 23, 2023 (Newswire.com) - PlayMetrics, a leading provider of operations management software for youth sports organizations, today announced a partnership with Blue Star Innovation Partners ("BSIP"). The growth-focused investment firm, founded by serial entrepreneur Rob Wechsler and backed by Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, will take a significant ownership position in PlayMetrics.
PlayMetrics has grown and scaled rapidly since its inception, building a customer base of blue-chip clients across a variety of sports that rely on its Club Operating System to run every facet of their operations. The injection of capital coupled with Blue Star's operational, software, and integrated payments expertise will be instrumental in accelerating the speed at which new products are released, customer service is delivered, and new customers are onboarded. The partnership also enables PlayMetrics to expand into serving other youth sports organizations in the coming months, such as leagues, tournaments, and governing bodies.
"We are huge believers in the youth sports space, both professionally and personally," said Dan Wechsler, CEO of Blue Star Innovation Partners. "We've been looking for a software company and management team that could form the foundation for what will be the marquee platform for youth sports organizations, and we believe we found it in PlayMetrics.
