BOSTON (AP) – One of Boston's largest technology companies moves into a new headquarters.
Sports betting company DraftKings presents its new headquarters in downtown Boston this Tuesday. Business executives host a cutter and 105,000-square-foot space near Copley Square in the city's Back Bay neighborhood.
The company is currently located in an office building near South Station. It announced the move in January, when it planned to grow from 425 employees to more than 700 employees in 2019. About 600 of these workers were expected to be based in Boston.
DraftKings was founded in 2012 and gained its character as a major force in daily fantasy sports.
It has since washed into sports gambling in New Jersey and Mississippi as these states have expanded their playing laws.
