Today, March 12, 2015 marks the 2-year anniversary of Fancred's launch.
These are a few of our favorite moments.
Fancred was 1 of only 14 companies accepted into TechStars Spring 2013 class. We still don't know what Michael was doing with his arm in this photo.
We heard a deep, satisfied sigh from the other room. The Fancred app was given the stamp of approval by Apple. We could launch.
Lifelong friends who'd always wanted to start a business together were about to get their chance.
Within hours Fancred was a Top 25 sports app in the App Store.
The "Big Pitch"
We wanted our TechStars Demo Day pitch to be different.
(Tip: Fast forward to the last 90 seconds.)
Launch: Fancred Share Button
Media, teams, brands, and fans could share anything from anywhere to their Fancred profiles with just one click.

A completely redesigned app, and the launch of Fancred.com

Fancred was The Today Show's app of the week leading into the first week of football season...
...we tried to keep our cool.

Super Bowl XLIX
USA Today only mentioned one social app to download for the Super Bowl.
Fancred launched the #BeatESPN campaign in an effort to steal the top App Store spot from the ESPN app.
ESPN employs 8,000 people worldwide.
Fancred is a staff of 12.
We got to #5... but we're not done yet.
We began building the world’s largest fan network 2 years ago today.
To celebrate, we’ve launched your fan profile on the web! Fan profiles are a perfect new way to see and share Fancred online.
Thank you for an amazing 2 years.
We can't wait to show you what's next.
