Our Story

Fantastikk was created during the University of Iowa Start-Up Games Weekend. The goal of the program was to take an idea, conduct customer discovery, and pitch your potential business venture. Our team agreed upon one common goal, improving the fan experience while finding a solution for professional sports teams to increase their revenue off of fans already in the stadium. After placing 3rd in the competition we got to work and conduct customer interviews with teams and fans to find a unique offering. Today, we are staying true to our mission and aim to improve the fan experience by providing better analytics to professional sports teams through a customer loyalty program.
