Win More Together™ with DubClub

The DubClub online ecosystem enables sports content creators and sports data providers (collectively termed “cappers”) to make more money with DubClub than anywhere else, while providing a superior experience of information delivery and advantageous interaction for subscribers of cappers.

  • For cappers: DubClub provides a member buyer network along with a suite of tools, which cappers collectively use to grow their business and reliably deliver their content to their DubClub subscribers.

  • For subscribers: DubClub offers the fastest content delivery (via push, Telegram, email, Discord) along with communities integrations and “capper discovery” to power a great user experience.

DubClub was founded by a team of Stanford football and baseball alumni who launched the company’s first product in October 2021. Since then, DubClub has scaled rapidly to hundreds of thousands of users (DubClub "members"), with millions in revenue generated by cappers through the platform. DubClub is backed with Series A funding from a leading Silicon Valley tech VC firm and a leading sports-focused tech VC firm out of New York.

Our Vision is to structurally benefit millions of people through the expertise of our customers (sports cappers).

We will achieve our Mission and Vision by relentlessly delivering growth for our customers.

DubClub is the Destination for Premium Sports Content Creators. Win More Together™.

Today, over 3 billion people globally identify as sports fans.

People have been betting on the outcome of sporting events for thousands of years (known as “playing”).

In the United States alone, Americans spend over $100 billion annually betting on sports and 1 in 10 Americans bet on sports every week.

Given the Supreme Court’s 2018 ruling to allow states to legalize sports betting, our industry is nascent and growing.

Most people who bet on sports end up with less money in their betting bankroll over time given the relative sophistication of sportsbooks.

Thus, tens of millions of people are turning to social media seeking capper expertise.

Without DubClub, there is no bespoke network for advantageous sports information and interaction.

As a result, DubClub exists to build an online ecosystem where everyone Wins More Together™.

Our Values (The 4 "C's")

We are product-centric in our approach to delivering growth for cappers. Our 4 main values are below.

  1. Customer-obsession

    • Customer Obsessed: Sports cappers are our customers (aka “partners”). Our partners (cappers) are our highest priority and our greatest asset. Subscribers use DubClub because cappers use DubClub. Without cappers, we would have no problems to solve and thus DubClub wouldn't exist.

    • Pain Solving: Start small, solve pain, ship a simple solution, get feedback (seek the Answers to the Test), and iterate from there. We deliver growth for our partners by solving problems.

  2. Collaboration

    • Win More Together™ Positive vibes only. We rely on each other and trust each other. As a remote-first company, we prioritize sharing knowledge through meetings facilitated by written documentation. Collaboration is KEY. Documentation is GOLD.

    • Accountability: DubClub employees are provided resources to succeed and are valued for holding themselves accountable. Performance is measured and communicated with directness and transparency.

  3. Creativity

    • Informed Risk Taking: We place educated bets (quite literally using the advice of cappers). We de-risk our big ideas with theses that we can test and data that provides us with a measurable outcome.

    • Compound Value: We double down on bets that can provide value for our partners (cappers) and our partners’ customers (subscribers).

  4. Clarity

    • Intentional decision-making: *We make decisions collaboratively, but with intentionality. To avoid extraneous opinions that slow us down, we use the RAPID framework and provide Answers To The Test for components of the RAPID.

    • Less is more: We eliminate ambiguity and reduce complexity to increase comprehension. This applies to processes, protocols, documentation, code, and more. Clear eyes… full hearts… Win More Together™.

    • Housekeeping: Regular cleanup ensures that we avoid extraneous noise that can slow us down. We strive to be anti-chaos machines.
