Welcoming DribbleUp to the Dorm Room Fund family!
Dorm Room Fund is excited to announce our new investment in DribbleUp, a smart sports equipment company that sells app-enabled basketballs to make training exciting and effective. They’re working to build a multi-sport platform for trainers, athletes, and influencers to publish interactive training content to all their players and followers.
DribbleUp bundles a game-ready basketball with a smartphone app that tracks and analyzes your performance using your smartphone camera and patented computer vision algorithms.
Meet co-founders (and brothers) Marc and Eric Forkosh
Marc is an undergraduate business student at Baruch College, and as a basketball enthusiast and former student athlete, he has a deep understanding of the sports consumer market. Eric is a recent graduate of The Cooper Union and brings to the table a ton of technical expertise in software and electrical engineering. Eric is also a Dorm Room Fund alum and was formerly a partner on the New York investment team.
Our team was incredibly impressed by Marc and Eric’s ability to build a highly technical product, establish distribution channels, and gain early traction through targeted customer acquisition. We’re excited to partner with DribbleUp as they expand across a growing market.
