RALEIGH, N.C., Jan. 28, 2019 -- Silbo, Inc., the leading automation platform for sports officials and amateur sports leagues, was honored as the "Most Promising" startup at the annual Triangle Tweener Awards. Presented by Scot Wingo, CEO of Spiffy and founder of Channel Advisor, the Tweener Awards are given to tech startups in the Raleigh-Durham area. Past Tweeners include Red Hat, SAS Software and Dude Solutions. Other companies receiving awards that evening included Durham-based sport tech venture TeamWorks.

Brendan Szulik, Silbo CEO, accepted the award on behalf of the company. "It's rare that sports officials receive awards. Usually we just get boos," he said. "But receiving this recognition from Scot and our peers not only validates our business, but also our successful and continued advocacy for sports officials."

The award follows Silbo's $1.3MM fundraising event in October and integrations with SportsEngine, TeamSnap and eTrak in November.
