About us

A team of Silicon Valley engineers, passionate about sport.

Overview

Simply Compete Inc. was founded by two tech-and-sport enthusiasts Sujay Karve and Mayur Karve. While competing in badminton tournaments in different parts of the world Sujay recognized the common operational problems experienced by the event organizers. Sujay recognized that most of these problems can be solved with good software.

Fresh off of his experience working as an engineer at Google, Sujay, partnered with Mayur to develop the first version of our sports management platform. Since then, the platform has grown tremendously with a rich feature-set supported by teams in our offices in two countries and many others working remotely worldwide.
