Blue Star Sports Gobbles Up CaptainU
Dallas-based sports software developer Blue Star Sports has acquired yet another company, saying last week that it has acquired CaptainU, a developer of athletic development and recruiting software for athletes, clubs, events, and colleges. The financial details of the acquisition were not announced. The acquisition is the eighth acquisition by Blue Star Sports since it launched in April of 2016, and follows an acquisition last week of RaceWire. Blue Star Sports--which was founded and is led by Rob Wechsler--has from day one been buying up youth sports and other sports software companies, and incorporating those companies into its own suite of offerings.
