AI-powered sports betting app Sharp App announced its co-founder and COO Jason Mezrahi competed and won $50,000 in cash and prizes pitching the Sharp App to a celebrity panel of entrepreneurs on David Meltzer’s “pitch only” show, the 2 Minute Drill.
Hosted by entrepreneur, investor and best-selling author David Meltzer, 2 Minute Drill features entrepreneurs from all walks of life competing each week for more than $50K in cash and prizes. The full episode can be viewed on the show’s website.
Five contestants have two minutes to deliver their pitches. During Episode 2, Meltzer was joined on the judges panel by former NFL Star and CEO of Lights Out Brand, Shawne Merriman; Kennected’s CEO Devin Johnson; and CEO and founder of National Business Capital, Joe Camberato.
“It’s amazing to be recognized by such an esteemed group of successful entrepreneurs,” said Mezrahi. “While our tech-driven tools and services are second-to-none in the sports betting market, what really separated Sharp App from the other contestants was our commitment to sustainable profitability through our lean operation and meticulous approach to user acquisition and retention.”
“We’re looking forward to leveraging the prize money into the next great innovation from Sharp App,” he further noted.
In October, Sharp App was announced as part of the HPL Digital Sport and Cardinal Sports Capital Accelerator Program based on the company’s growth, ability to scale and development of new innovative tools.
Since 2021, Sharp has held an 80% month-over-month premium subscriber retention rate and provided upgrades and scaled content for its Game Center, a centralized hub of news, trends, lines and betting information; and Sharp Academy, a multimedia masterclass that will teach all skill levels different aspects of sports betting, led by sports betting expert John Alessia.
