Tech startup PlayerLync gets cash from Anschutz


ENGLEWOOD | A Colorado tech firm whose customers include 16 NFL teams has received a cash boost from the investment company of Denver billionaire Philip Anschutz.

Englewood-based PlayerLync didn’t say how much Anschutz Investment Co. invested, but a PlayerLync spokesman said Tuesday it is “in the millions.”

The Denver Broncos, Chicago Bears and others are using PlayerLync’s software platform to synchronize the delivery of playbooks, videos, messages and other content to their players and employees via their iPads or Windows 8 tablets.

PlayerLync says the cash from Anschutz Investment Co. will allow it to move into industries such as retail. It says it also wants to target the media, medical and transportation industries.
