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 and crowdsourcing element of the business in late 2015. It now focuses 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 consult, GamCrowd news as well as the GamCrowd reports and events channels.
GamCrowd has become the home of the gambling technology sector holding monthly meetups that cover topics like blockchain and Ai. With a community of over 400 people in these groups creating a driving force behind where technology is the gambling industry.
GamCrowd is also actively involved in the start-up and early stage business focused events, GamCrowd Pitch ICE and the Launch Pad events at GIGSE and EIG with its partner Clarion Events.
In addition, GamCrowd’s Tech week event as part of London Tech week looks at promoting the gambling technology sector to the wider tech community and to promote new tech trends to the gambling industry.
