About this event

 Brian founded Galway-based, Orreco in 2009. It provides applied sports and data science solutions for world leading athletes, federations and professional franchises. Their expertise in AI, Machine Learning, Cognitive computing and Bioanalytics helps find hidden signals in elite athlete datasets. Their mission is to improve decision making, optimize performance and prolong athletes careers.

Earlier this year Orreco announced $2 million in new funding. The investment was led by True Ventures, which has previously backed fitness-related startups Fitbit, Peloton, and Athos. The startup has profiled more than 2,000 athletes, including Mark Cuban’s Dallas Mavericks, NBA player Wilson Chandler of the Denver Nuggets, and pro golfers Henrik Stenson and Patrick Reed. “We are currently focused on the elite market but are building solutions for an eventual launch to amateur athletes,” wrote Moore.

Founded in 2010, Orreco currently has 15 full-time employees and 10 contracted research scientists. The new investment will be used for product development, to hire more employees, and expand its presence in the U.S. — the team is relocating its main office from Ireland to Los Angeles. Orreco previously raised $2.5 million from angel investors, including Tom Killalea, former VP of technology at Amazon.
