Last night at the National Business Awards, FanDuel was named as the Amazon Digital Business of the Year. Founded in the UK in 2009, FanDuel is an online fantasy sports game which offers contests in American football, basketball, baseball and hockey. They have achieved significant growth in the US in recent years and looks set to replicate that success across the world.
The Amazon Digital Business of the Year award sought to recognise the best use of e-commerce by any organisation operating online, with a specific focus on providing an exceptional customer experience.
Doug Gurr, UK Country Manager at Amazon said, “It’s great to see digital technology enabling entrepreneurs like the team at FanDuel invent award-winning entertainment services for millions of people who love sport. All the nominees were fantastic examples of how the digital economy is providing a big boost to the overall UK economy, creating high quality jobs up and down the country, and we’re delighted to help recognise their success.”
