GamCrowd was founded in 2013 when Chris North and Ian Hogg, two experienced gambling industry entrepreneurs, launched the first crowdfunding and crowdsourcing platform for the gambling industry.
Adjusting its model to respond to the market, GamCrowd closed the crowdfunding element of the business in late 2015. It now focuses on its crowdsourcing marketplace, promoting the gambling technology sector to the wider tech community and covering tech trends that could be applied or disrupt the gambling industry. They do this through GamCrowd News, GamCrowd Academy as well as the GamCrowd Reports and Events channels. GamCrowd is the home of innovation and ideas for the gambling industry.
GamCrowd is actively involved in start-up and early stage business focused events, GamCrowd Pitch ICE and GamCrowd Academy Live. It also supports the Launch Pad events at GIGSE and EIG with its partner Clarion Events and the SiGMA events.
In addition GamCrowd’s London Tech week event looks at promoting the gambling technology sector to the wider tech community and to promote new tech trends back to the gambling industry.
