About The Team
SPORTLOGiQ was founded by Craig Buntin, an Olympic Athlete, and Mehrsan Javan, a PhD in computer vision and machine learning, with the support of the TandemLaunch incubator. As a three-time Canadian figure skating champion, Craig recognized the need for advanced analytics in sports, something that would have completely changed the way he trained and performed. He retired from professional sports and partnered with Mehrsan who, at the time, was specializing in statistical modeling with more than 7 years of experience in algorithm development for intelligent systems. Together, they created SPORTLOGiQ.
Our team is comprised of over 40 of the best and brightest PhDs, software engineers and designers. We currently fund and guide early stage research at 9 of the best academic labs across Canada, working with world-renowned AI scientists, which has led to 6 patents in two short years.
We are backed by Mark Cuban and a number of team owners and media executives.
