This is a tremendous milestone for our team. We're proud to be one of the only fantasy platforms in the world to offer real-money fantasy contests internationally. To achieve this milestone, we have partnered with Skrill, a world leader in payment solutions in the gaming space.
As we celebrate our World Cup launch, we are also reflecting on the major milestones the Starting 11 team has achieved in the last 10 months. We launched our free MVP version worldwide to the rabid global soccer fan base in August 2017, won the 2017 Minnesota Cup High Tech Division in October 2017, secured a UK Gambling Commission license and a $300K seed round in early 2018, and launched our cash game MVP in March 2018.
With the 2018 World Cup and the recent U.S. Supreme Court sports gambling decision opening up innovation potential in the fantasy sports space, we couldn't be more excited about what the rest of 2018 will bring.
