This is the first round of outside funding for SIS. The investment will provide the company the opportunity to build upon its long history of success in working with professional sports teams and the chance to further grow its product suite for professional Baseball, Football and Basketball teams and other clients.
SIS’ mission is to provide the most accurate, in-depth, and timely professional baseball, football, and basketball data, including cutting-edge research and analysis.

Dewan co-founded SIS as Baseball Info Solutions in 2002 after working multiple decades in sports statistics as the co-founder of STATS Inc. The company expanded to provide coverage of football and changed its name to Sports Info Solutions in 2016.
SIS’ most recent addition was the development of a basketball analytics business in 2020. It recently hired former Phoenix Suns Director of Analytics & Technology Jake Loos to run its basketball operation.
«We’re investing in SIS because we believe in everything that John and the team have accomplished,» said Jared Melillo, Partner at Audeo Capital. «SIS has an exceptional history and has made a huge impact as a pioneer in sports analytics. They’ve helped create a business category with the work they’ve done, and they’ve only scratched the surface of what we can accomplish.»
