Hopscotch, Backed By $12.5M, Now Powering 40 College Teams

Los Angeles-based Hopscotch, a venture backed startup which develops mobile app technology used for fan engagement, says it has now created the official mobile app for more than 40 college athletic programs. The company--which is backed by $12.5M in funding from Mosaik Partners--says it powers the official football fan apps for Oregon, Auburn, Baylor, Ole Miss, Michigan State and many others. Those apps provide scores, news, season schedules, player stats, tickets, and more. Hopscotch, which is led by entrepreneur Laurence Sotsky, says it now has 50 employees, and is hoping to recruit another 15.
