In October 2010, the Philadelphia Area Disc Alliance needed a new website. They hired Jeremy and Alex.
The rest, as they say, is history. What? They don't say that until after the story? Fine.
After finishing the initial version of the PADA website, we realized we had developed a pretty solid solution for running a league online. Not a perfect one, but something simpler and more flexible than what every other organization out there was using. Why not share it?
We went down to the USAU Organizer's Conference in Washington DC in February 2011 and showed our service to about a dozen organizations. All of them loved it. Inspired, we continued to grow TopScore, developing modern features like email lists, calendar syncing, and a kick-butt schedule generator. As organizations continued to choose TopScore, we realized the ideal solution is one that organizations can start-up and manage on their own, but where we provide unlimited support.
Today, TopScore has grown into a 3 person company that provides solutions for tens of thousands of players and processes millions of dollars of event payments per year.
The future, as they say, will one day be history. Just kidding, no one says that.
An entrepreneur before he knew the meaning of the word, Jeremy has had a life-long interest in business and management. At TopScore, Jeremy handles operations, support, and some programming.
When not in front of the computer or at a meeting, Jeremy enjoys attempting to throw backhands behind people's heads. His ultimate history includes playing for such prestigious teams as Philly Love, RPI Trudge, and Albany Summer League Team Orange.
Jeremy has degrees in computer science and physics from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. Currently, his biggest non-TopScore related goal is to one day win Philadelphia summer league.
Alex Grintsvayg attended Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute from 2006-2008, earning degrees in computer science and psychology. He thinks he is smart for graduating in 3 years, but everyone else knows he is a fool for squandering two years of college eligibility.
Alex is the best ultimate player on team TopScore, attending both open and co-ed nationals on teams Pike and Amp. When not playing ultimate, Alex's hobbies include complaining about why you're not playing ultimate with him right now and asking you if you want to go throw.
At TopScore, Alex handles information technology, programming, and anything involving a spreadsheet.
