WHAT IS UNIQUE ABOUT YOUR COMPANY?
Dream11.com is the World's No.1 Fantasy Cricket Game of Skill with over 200,000 Indian users.

HOW DID YOU COME UP WITH THE IDEA?
My Co-Founders and I have always been fanatic Fantasy Soccer players. With the advent of the 3 hour long T20 game in cricket, we looked for a Fantasy Cricket game, but there was none. So we jumped on the opportunity to launch Dream11.com and fill this huge gap caused by the absence of Cricket, the world's second largest spectator sport, in a $5 billion Fantasy Sports industry having 40 million people playing worldwide. Our daily Fantasy Cricket game allows users to legally pay to join daily fantasy leagues & compete to win the cash pot every day! /  / So far, we have only been available to Indian users to pay-and-play but Dream11.com is now looking to expand globally to the US, UK, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Canada, the Caribbean and all other cricket playing nations.

WHICH RESOURCES AT COLUMBIA &  NEW YORK CITY HAVE BEEN MOST HELPFUL TO YOU?
The Lang Center, IE@Columbia, the Columbia Shark Tank competition and classes like VC/Angel deals, Launching New Ventures, VC Seminar and Entrepreneurial Finance.

HOW CAN THE COMMUNITY HELP YOU NOW?
If you have a friend from a cricket-playing country (India, Australia, New Zealand, England, South Africa, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Caribbean Islands, Bangladesh, etc) please ask them to check out Dream11.com to play Fantasy Cricket with real money legally! If you are from a cricket-playing country yourself - what are you waiting for? Please come and play Fantasy Cricket on Dream11.com!

HOW CAN THE COMMUNITY GET IN TOUCH WITH YOU?
You can email me anytime on harsh@dream11.com
