MN SportsTech Venture Hockey Finder Is Navigating The Rinks


Some startups are born out of deep purpose, the result of a vision brought to fruition. Others are more serendipitous.

Derrik Dyka describes his crossing paths with Don Giroux as a happy accident of sorts. Giroux, a native Canadian who moved to Minnesota to marry a girl many years back, became a friend and tennis partner. The two would go on to form Hockey Finder, a digital resource for arranging recreational games on the rink.

As Dyka watches the venture continue to gain impressive traction, he’s enjoying the ride and recognizing its bigger potential.
