How we started
Next Gen Fantasy began when our founder designed a new kind of tool to use for live fantasy football drafting in summer 2006. After enjoying terrific success in an early draft that summer, he began selling this early version on eBay, called The Visual Draft Tool. After receiving overwhelming positive feedback, Next Gen Fantasy Sports was born, with our founding product, now called The GRID.
Our growing staff now includes over 50 combined years of fantasy experience in just about every fantasy sport. It still amazes us how many holes there are in many of the tools and games that are available. The technology to patch these holes has been there all along, is inexpensive, and easy to apply. But nobody is putting much thought into truly better ways of doing things.
Next Gen is dedicated to that pursuit: the next generation of thought to produce revolutionary, easy-to-use, and inexpensive fantasy tools and games.
We hope you'll join us for the ride. Whether you've played fantasy sports for one year or 20, one league per year or 10, low stakes or high, Next Gen promises to feature innovative thought and products to make it worth your while.
Notes on Package Pricing
As more of our products become available, you'll see more and more product packages where we do three things:
Next Gen will always work from this model: Determine a fair price that fits our mission for the full features of our product lines. Then reduce the price from there for single items, for basic-feature products, and for single-feature add-ons. The point is, we don't want you to pay for what you don't need. We will never add a few hollow, flashy features and try to sell any kind of "premiere" version -- it's just not part of what we do.
