Disney Accelerator Alumni StatMuse Picks Up $10M Round

StatMuse, one of the companies to emerge out of the Disney Accelerator in Burbank last fall, said this morning that it has raised $10M in a Series A funding round. The round came from Techstars, The Walt Disney Company, Allen & Co., Greycroft Partners, Promus Ventures, Haas Portman, Deep Fork Capital, and Bee Partners. The round also included former NBA commissioner David Stern and the United Talent Agency. StatMuse develops natural language search software and a social interface, which helps fans push out statistics about their favorite teams; the company currently has a deal with the NBA to offer up its service to fans of the league. StatMuse was founded by Eli Dawson and Adam Elmore. The company was part of the second class of the Disney Accelerator, and showed off its product in October at the accelerator's Demo Day.
