Winible Raises $6M to Transform Sports Betting and Gaming Communities

Winible’s first-of-its-kind platform enables sports influencers and experts to monetize their insights and predictions with customizable digital storefronts, subscription models, and payment processing.

MIAMI, FL – March 19, 2024 – Winible, the first e-commerce platform exclusively focused on the sports betting market, announces $6M in seed funding. The round was led by Inspired Capital with notable participation from industry figures such as Adam Wexler (PrizePicks), Kyle Christensen (Pointsbet), NFL legend Ray Lewis, 8vc founder and general partner Jake Medwell, unicorn founders David Petersen (Flexport), Michael Flaxman (Thumbtack) and Adam Lyons (The Zebra), and others. 

Sports betting influencers operate in a stigmatized space, relegated to using platforms like Discord and Telegram to distribute their content and high friction low trust payment solutions like CashApp and Venmo to monetize. In contrast, Winible aims to provide a safe, secure, stable, and professional platform for its users with its first-of-a-kind e-commerce offering designed to revolutionize the sports betting industry and built specifically for creators within the sports betting space. Winible allows any sports betting influencer to build a highly customizable digital storefront to monetize their knowledge with payment processing, subscription management, real-time SMS notifications, customer support, self-service free trials, and custom discount codes. Since its stealth launch in late 2023, Winible has signed up thousands of users per week without spending a single dollar on sales or marketing. This truly organic growth can be attributed to network effects of a value delivery flywheel that not only streamlines operations and growth for sports betting influencers but also establishes Winible as a trusted hub where enthusiasts, experts, and creators converge to share insights, fostering a dynamic and engaged community dedicated to the future of sports betting and gaming.
