SEATTLE, WA (August 30, 2012) – Korrio (korrio.com), a cloud-based service for organizing and sharing youth sports, announced today it has secured $4.6 million in new funding from existing investors. This round of funding was raised to further support the development of Korrio’s online sports automation service as the company broadens its reach beyond youth soccer to focus across a variety of organized sports in the United States and abroad.
“When we launched the Korrio sports automation service six quarters ago, it was our intent to shake up the youth sports industry by introducing a new transformative online service for managing your sports life that would positively impact every stakeholder,” said Korrio Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Steve Goldman. “Korrio is now powering youth soccer leagues, teams and clubs in more than 27 states and three countries and is improving the youth sports experience for coaches, players and parents. This new funding will help us accelerate our momentum and fuel the development of new capabilities as we expand into new sports markets.”
