Austin Chamber A-List Award winner FloSports earned some much-deserved national attention this month when the highly regarded business publication Inc Magazine decided to tell their story. The magazine describes FloSports as, “one of the most surprising successes in the rapidly shifting sports media landscape.” However, for those following the highly talented people who work and live in Austin’s startup scene, it's far from a surprise.

Since receiving the A-list Award, FloSports has experienced a continued stream of growth and expansion, including the October profile of co-founders and brothers Martin and Mark Floreani aptly titled They Started With $10,000. Now They're Taking on ESPN.
