This quote from our CEO pretty much sums up why we created Fancred
The Reflector, the student newspaper of Mississippi State University, interviewed one of its alumni last week: Our CEO, Hossein Kash Razzaghi.
“So, the premise of Fancred is to enhance your life as a sports fan by giving you a single point of access to the information and content from people you trust: the beat reporters, the blog writers, the journalists. In that same place, we want to give you a forum to have conversations with people you trust and enjoy,” Razzaghi said.
The app stemmed from the need. The need as a fan… not simply a group of people who simply wanted to build a sports app.
Hossein Kash Razzaghi, chief executive officer of Fancred, said he has often resorted to text messaging and email when talking Mississippi State University sports with childhood best friend and co-founder, Michael Pan. However, about a year ago, they decided being a sports fan was not as simple as they would like and used their experiences as inspiration for starting the company.
“During Mississippi State games that we would watch, he was in Chicago and I was in Boston, and we would always find ourselves texting each other and emailing, but it would be a long thread of emails back and forth. There isn’t enough time during the day to spend visiting 15 different sports blogs or websites to keep up with the latest in Mississippi State athletics,” he said.
Thanks again to The Reflector for the great article and for supporting the work of its alumni.
