iGaming entrepreneur Erik Bergman pledges over $1M in CTTMF shares to Founders Pledge, a global community of entrepreneurs, and donates another $100,000+ as an operational supporter.

Erik Bergman launched Great.con in 2018 with a mission to end the global climate crisis. Using his expertise in iGaming, Erik wanted to build a revenue-generating platform that would help carry out this mission.

The business concept of is to build the world’s most trusted iGaming review website, which would generate profits through affiliate partnerships – 100% of which would be donated to vetted charities working to solve climate change.

Not only is the business concept unique, but the organizational structure and management of is also groundbreaking. Transparency is one of its core values with employee conditions and work culture shared openly. For example, records and publishes weekly meetings to its website along with employees’ salaries.

Erik was quoted in Forbes saying that “I believe the people we want to attract and want in our team – are the same people that resonate with transparency.”

The ambition of is not just to end the climate crisis but to challenge the traditional norms associated with work. Erik has set out to build a more open, inclusive, and sustainable organization which he hopes will set the blueprint for other companies to follow.

Now, another donation of $100,000 is being made to help fund the operational costs associated with Founders Pledge – a global community of more than 1,400 entrepreneurs. Every member of Founders Pledge must make a legally binding “pledge” to donate a chosen portion of their current or future wealth to charity.

This $100,000 donation to Founders Pledge as an operational supporter will help mitigate the burden that COVID-19 has had on their organization and will enable their team to continue its efforts of expanding its community, securing more pledges, and channeling millions of dollars to high-impact charities working on key global issues such as climate change.

In addition to this $100,000 donation, Erik Bergman also joined Founders Pledge as a member and signed a future pledge to donate 20% of his shares in Catena Media (CTTMF) which is currently valued at $1.3 million.

Founders Pledge is a unique community of entrepreneurs who have a shared purpose of wanting to do the most good in the world. The organization has a research team that focuses on charity due diligence, data collection, and the curation of high-impact causes throughout the world that are being underserved philanthropically. They strive to use data and analysis to recommend charities which will offer the largest return per dollar donated.

For example, in response to COVID-19, Founders Pledge created a single fund that would enable members and the public to contribute resources into which would then be dispersed by Founders Pledge to vetted charities aimed at pandemic preparedness, stopping the spread of COVID-19, and lessening the social and economic burden on the most affected communities. Founders Pledge takes an adaptive approach with its fund allocation to

COVID-19 relief which means they are making strategic decisions every time they contribute

– choosing the cause for which that donation would have the greatest impact. Erik Bergman, founder of, comments:

“When I founded, it was because I wanted to build an organization that could make the greatest difference possible for our environment – both from a climate and organizational perspective. So, it is important for me to find ways to create compounding returns. Founders Pledge is one such organization, as they have built up unique expertise on how to create the greatest impact with charitable giving. It’s an honor for me that can now help this incredible organization further their altruistic efforts.”

David Goldberg, founder, Founders Pledge, adds:

“It is very welcome that Erik Bergman and join our network. We bring together entrepreneurs with cutting-edge skills that are all driven by helping to do good for our world. The exchange between members is very valuable and can now take advantage of the unique knowledge we possess, to be able to make more well-founded donations.”

“My wish is that entrepreneurs and companies around the world start to be driven by serving a greater purpose. By joining Founders Pledge, I want to inspire others to do the same. You can make a difference if you do the right research and manage it through the right organizations”, Erik Bergman concludes.

tal-gabriel-1 Meet the talented lady responsible for GrooveGaming’s technical projectsReading Time: 3 minutes


GrooveGaming have selected a talented woman as their Technical Project Manager, Tal Gabriel, who is responsible for the technical projects of one of the biggest content platforms on planet earth.

Diversity and inclusion are major corporate priorities for GrooveGaming, especially as the company continues to expand internationally serving a wide range of clients and partners. To fulfill the company’s vision, it is vital to choose diverse talent with the current GrooveGaming workforce being approximately 70% women. Given the aggregator’s innovation profile, this is achieved and sustained by the combination of perspectives from a diverse workforce and good partners. Gender equality and women’s empowerment are a primary focus area for GrooveGaming’s diversity and inclusion initiatives.

GrooveGaming’s 6-Continents Strategy from the get-go was predicated on data empowerment and capacity-building as a transformational company that realised that by increasing local marketing capability while instilling better services, processes and disciplines centrally, would have significant appeal across the industry. Today, more-and-more international casino brands and content partners are looking to develop interesting ventures with the dynamic aggregator of choice, especially in Europe, Asia, Africa and Latin America.

As a company, GrooveGaming strives to unleash team potential and break records every day, encouraging team members to be bold and make important decisions. In this sense, Tal has a huge impact on the business, lending her problem-solving skills to the technical team to maximise technical performance at the aggregator which is attracting attention from outside the igaming community for the quality of its technology.

GrooveGaming continues to expand rapidly on the back of some of the most robust technology in the igaming industry, constantly developing functionality and improving user experience. GrooveGaming has been recognised as one of the ’10 Best Innovative Technology Solution Providers of 2020′ by IndustryEra, firmly demonstrating that the aggregator’s technology development is being acknowledged not only in the iGaming industry, but also from outside it.

While the working day has not changed enormously for the GrooveGaming development team, who are scattered in 3 major centres – Ukraine, Georgia and Israel; plus serving suppliers and clients around the world, so getting used to working remotely from home has presented some adjustments. The silence of home has led to improved productivity and Tal is coordinating internal and external communications on integrations and other projects, such as business intelligence and big-data projects for the Groove Gaming platform, with a lot of her time being spent in online meetings relaying essential information and keeping everyone in the loop.

Her motto is ‘to be a step before the others’, meaning to know what the next technical step is and then to coordinate it within the GrooveGaming ecosystem. Apart from coordinating integrations with suppliers and clients, managing timelines, allocating tasks and ensuring that every task is assigned across the 3 teams, checking the process and status of everything each hour, she is also planning infrastructural work on the platform that is focused on upgrades and improvements, particularly centred on user experience to make it better for clients and suppliers to work with and taking into account the end goal that the platform is easy to use and comfortable for all the stakeholders making use of it.

Platform development is strongly influenced by taking into account the constantly changing landscape of the iGaming space, and Tal deeply understands the system and the system structure, and it is this knowledge that helps power her team and deliver excellent internal and external service, with Tal being available 24/7 to troubleshoot any urgent requests.

All of this explains why GrooveGaming is the aggregator of choice for a host of big industry names including EveryMatrix, iGP, Digitain, GoBet, ProgressPlay, Hub88, QTech, Alea, Quickfire, Max Entertainment and BetConstruct, amongst others.

GrooveGaming’s powerful platform includes over 4000 casino games as well as a wealth of aggregated content ranging from slots, online casino and live casino, to poker and table games, that operators can access via easy integration to drive player engagement and revenue.

Tal Gabriel, GrooveGaming’s Technical Project Manager says: “We are always trying to be better, to be a step ahead of the market. GrooveGaming is a data company underpinned by big-data technologies, working at scale in the cloud and powered by artificial intelligence and machine-learning. The GrooveGaming development team has helped build significant competitive advantage from devising advanced algorithms, API development and state-of-the-art content management systems which put casino operators in total control of game offerings.”
