As the number of after-school activities has multiplied in recent years, parents have often found themselves struggling to stay on top of it all.

Practices, games, different kids, different sports, lot of balls to keep up in the air. That’s why Dave DuPont found TeamSnap in Boulder, Colorado.

15 million customers in 175 countries now rely on this subscription-based mobile app. TeamSnap is 8-years -old. It employs more than 100 people and is about to grow further, thanks to $25 million in new venture capital.

The company’s founder said new features like improved messaging; video highlights and access to sports apparel and equipment are on the horizon.

Like other apps, it’s all about enhancing the user experience and making activities like these more manageable than they were before.
