Description

Mr. Jason Robins is a Co-Founder and serves as the Chief Executive Officer and Board Member at DraftKings. He has quickly built a reputation for expanding DraftKings' reach across numerous platforms through wide-ranging, forward-thinking partnerships. Under his leadership, DraftKings became the first DFS company to sign a league partnership, with Major League Baseball (MLB) in 2013. Since then, the company has signed four additional league-wide partnerships, including the National Hockey League (NHL), NASCAR, MLS and UFC. DraftKings is also the exclusive partner of 12 National Football League (NFL) teams, seven National Basketball League (NBA) teams, 27 MLB teams and seven NHL teams. With a keen eye for opportunity, Robins led his company to partner with the 2015 Belmont Stakes when the world watched as American Pharoah won the first Triple Crown in 37 years. He has also spearheaded DraftKings' partnerships with major media outlets, including ESPN, FOX Sports and Bleacher Report; marquee facilities like Madison Square Garden, STAPLES Center, AT&T Stadium and Gillette Stadium; and charitable events with golf icon Tiger Woods and NBA Champion Shane Battier. Robins' work has been recognized by the media and his peers, both nationally and locally in the Boston region. Among his recent accolades, he was named to Fortune's 2015 "40 Under 40" list of the most influential people in business in September 2015, appearing on that issue's cover. Additional honors in 2015 include being named to Sports Business Journal's "40 Under 40" list and receiving the Ernst & Young's Entrepreneur of the Year Award for New England. Under his leadership, DraftKings has been named the Best Fantasy Sports Provider by iGaming North America (2015) and is a two-time winner of Bostinno's 50 On Fire Award (2014, 2015). Robins attended Duke University, where he received his degree in Economics and Computer Science.
