A new internet startup went live today.
Toronto-born FantasyCourt is an online platform that lets users take their disputes to their personal networks to crowdsource resolutions. Described as “a new breed of justice for the new generation,” FC has both sides of a party lay out their case for their personal community to play the role of judge and jury on.
“Whether consciously or not, people, especially younger generations are turning to their networks for information and advice—where to go on Saturday night, what to wear, who to support,” said CEO Rob Crnkovic. “And it makes sense they turn to those same people to help resolve their dispute.”
Also involved in FantasyCourt is Reed Bracken, a third-year business student at Wilfrid Laurier University. “Feedback has been great,” he says. He notes that FC is targeting the post-secondary student demographic. “I don’t think you ever have more disputes then when living with a bunch of people at college. There is no end to what we can take to the court. It’s pretty compelling when the people you hang out with everyday vote out a verdict.”
Whether it’s a bet that was never resolved or a dispute over who’s turn it is to host dinner, FantasyCourt believes its “social justice” platform can resolve the issue.
