Mission Control was founded in 2018 by Austin Smith and Byron Abrigg, both St. Louis University graduates who formerly worked at sports-business accelerator Stadia Ventures.
Its software allows a group of friends -- or a school, workplace or community center -- to organize a league for popular video games such as Call of Duty, Fortnite and Madden NFL. The platform handles scheduling and registration fees, and includes free and paid versions.
Organizations using the platform include Duke University, the Dallas parks and recreation department and some Special Olympics groups, Mission Control said.
Dundee Ventures of Omaha is the lead investor in the seed round. Other investors include Cultivation Capital of St. Louis and two Chicago firms, M25 and MATH Venture Partners.
