About the Company

Grin Gaming is a social engagement platform that allows eSports and sports fans to get some skin in the game by watching and wagering in real-time as events unfold. Grin augments the streaming experience by adding a wagering layer in the same view as live stream video. Users can watch live streams, test their ability to predict outcomes in real-time, and get rewarded for being right.

What Grin Loves About Operate:

“Operate is the glue that fills in all the cracks within our organization. They help us figure out solutions to problems we didn’t know we had before they become issues that slow the business down. On a personal level, it is a joy to work with everyone in the Operate family day in and out, and we’re thrilled to be on this journey with them!”

About Nick

Nick is a University of Michigan-trained machine learning engineer with 10 years of experience in the tech industry working with large publicly traded companies like Apple, as well as small venture-funded startups. After multiple exits, Nick decided to pursue a gap he saw in the burgeoning live streaming market, and thus Grin Gaming was born.

Why Operate Accepted Grin into the Studio:

“What attracted us to Grin was a combination of the founder’s deep intelligence around Machine Learning and the high-frequency algorithms he’s built that go beyond gaming and can apply to any live stream. It’s a winning combination.”
