Rodriguez and Lore, who purchased a 20% stake in the NBA’s Minnesota Timberwolves and the WNBA’s Minnesota Lynx for $1.5 billion last April, will not be involved in the day-to-day operations of the company.
Mojo CEO and co-founder Vinit Bharara said the company is still making arrangements with sports leagues, gaming commissions, and regulators.
“I’ve always thought the idea of a sports stock market was the holy grail — the vision could transform sports, and fandom as a whole,” Lore said.
