TeamSnap snaps up worldwide following

BOULDER – TeamSnap Inc., a Boulder-based startup that helps athletes and coaches manage their teams, has gone global – much to its surprise.

TeamSnap reported Monday it has users in 177 countries and has achieved 200 percent growth in its number of users, vice president Ken McDonald said. More than 1 million users and 100,000 teams have tried TeamSnap, according to the company.

TeamSnap is a mobile and web-based platform that manages schedules and allows team organizers and members to communicate with each other. It has functions that manage rosters, schedules and attendance, among other capabilities.

The international growth comes despite TeamSnap being an English-only application, McDonald said.

“We’re pretty amazed how much it has spread overseas and how many people are using it now,” he said.

TeamSnap attributes its recent growth to online marketing efforts it ramped up this year, McDonald said, including SEO and online referrals.

“In the early days, it was just word of mouth. For the first two-and-a-half years, it just spread naturally,” McDonald said.

TeamSnap is “pretty close to cash flow even,” McDonald said. The company launched in 2009 and has raised about $1.6 million in seed funding. TeamSnap has about a dozen employees spread across the country, with two – McDonald and chairman and chief executive Dave DuPont – based in Boulder.
