St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) October 12, 2012
LockerDome, a social media platform for sports and one of the fastest growing online sports properties in the country, announced today that it has been named one of the St. Louis 2012 Businesses of the Year. The award was presented by Mayor Francis Slay on behalf of the St. Louis Economic Development Corporation at the Business Celebration Luncheon on October 5th.
"We’d like to thank the local community for both its amazing support for LockerDome and its continued support in building a top-tier local tech scene right here in St. Louis. It's an exciting time to be a tech entrepreneur in St. Louis,” remarked Gabe Lozano, co-founder and CEO of LockerDome.
LockerDome has been on a roll recently. This week the company surpassed 2 million monthly unique visitors, which it reached in just 9 months since re-launching the platform in January 2012.
LockerDome additionally announced this week that it has hand-picked 25 of the top sports agencies in the country as official launch partners, immediately bringing its platform to hundreds of high-profile professional athletes, ranging anywhere from NFL superstars Larry Fitzgerald and Troy Polamalu to the retired MLB legend Pete Rose. Sports agencies are leveraging LockerDome as a means to maximize their clients’ existing social media efforts on Facebook and Twitter and to better engage their fanbase. The 25 firms were selected based on their industry reputation as well as client lists that LockerDome believes fit seamlessly within the platform today.
