Idea

Turny helps create better tournaments by connecting participants with invitations, notifications and improved game play. It is designed for both ad hoc competitions and large-scale events.

Turny is designed for everyone designing competitions from coaches and teachers to your local math league or Startup Weekend Las Vegas.

Turny has the flexibility to accommodate many modes of game play from single elmination, double elimination and round robin while preserving beautiful statistics to socially share with family and friends. We’re getting ready to launch the beta, so sign up at TurnyApp.com!

Monetization

Turny makes money through smartphone app stores, in-app advertising and selling advance tickets via the event. As well, Turny aggressively seeks to build relationships with major brands like Gatorade to launch white label products in conjunction with social media campaigns.
