JEFF MA AND MIKE KERNS
Current Status: Sports media Cinderellas



Changing The Game By: Disrupting the competitive landscape of the sports market by bringing fantasy sports to Facebook and giving ESPN a run for its money on the iPhone. Citizen Sports, founded by Kerns and Ma in 2004 on the premise that the cumulative knowledge of sports fans is more valuable than the word of any self-professed sports expert, lets the user access scores, news and fantasy games on any platform. Citizen Sports will end 2009 as the third largest fantasy sports provider, trailing only Yahoo! and ESPN. The Sportacular app is second only to ESPN's ScoreCenter on the iPhone, distinguishing itself by offering instant push notifications every time the score changes in the games played by your favorite teams.



Hit Me!: Ma was a member of the legendary MIT blackjack team that conquered casinos in Vegas and beyond. The leading character in the bestselling book “Bringing Down the House” and its film adaptation “21” was based on him.
