Bloomington-based startup ProBook Sports has just received a $50,000 investment by Flywheel Fund, a member-managed capital fund run by The Mill. ProBook provides an all-in-one platform to streamline team management and athlete development.
In April, ProBook founder and Chief Executive Officer Andre Harakas won first prize at the Crossroads Collegiate Pitch Competition, hosted by The Mill, a center for coworking and entrepreneurship.
“We saw a great opportunity there for Flywheel Fund to get in early with an up-and-coming sports tech startup. ProBook provides a needed solution and has a smart strategy for going to market,” said Pat East, executive director of the Mill.
While as a football player at Indiana Wesleyan University, Harakas saw coaches were using multiple apps to monitor athletic training, nutrition and team management. His app streamlines the process. The new capital will help ProBook further develop the app’s features and expand its customer base.
