‘Tinder for betting’ Bookee scoops Bright Minds Showcase startup prize worth £25K  

Published

Mobile-first sports betting app Bookee has been awarded the top prize in the prestigious Brightest Minds Showcase at the iGaming Entrepreneur Conference.

 

The innovative platform – which is being described by many as Tinder for betting – was chosen ahead of 12 rivals at the London event as it scooped a mentoring and professional services package worth more than £25,000.

 

Each entrant presented a 60-second pitch video before answering questions from the assembled experts, mentors and investors at the Grange Hotel, Tower Bridge. In a highly-competitive field, the judges were ultimately wowed by the Bookee app, which offers users the chance to place a bet with the simple swipe of a finger.

 

“The mentoring and service providers all voted on their top three-rated projects based on innovation, team, likelihood of success and several other factors,” said Michael Caselli, the organiser of iGaming Entrepreneurs Conference, which took place on December 6.

 

“We then scored all the projects to find a winner that each mentor and provider agreed they would like to support and work with.”

 

Bookee was founded by former school friends Adam Kalmanson, previously with William Hill, and Adam Wilson, once of 888, with the aim of creating a personalised and social platform for the recreational gambler.

 

Already available via Apple’s App Store, the Bookee app curates individual sports bets for the user and provides them with a single instinctive binary action for each bet. Just like the Tinder dating app, users swipe right to approve or left to reject.

 

Since its formation, Bookee has raised a pre-seed round from leaders in the gaming industry, launched in beta with hundreds of paying users and is now looking to raise a seed round to “commercialise and truly disrupt the B2C betting space”. During testing over the course of the Euro 2016 football tournament last summer, Bookee’s margin was found to be well above industry average.

 

Kalmanson said: “We are delighted to have won the Bright Minds Showcase at this year’s iGaming Entrepreneurs Conference. We’d like to wish all our fellow start-ups the best of luck in 2017, and look forward to sharing more awesome features in Bookee in the coming months.

 

“Bookee is about simplicity. We invented this app because we became frustrated with how stuck in the past parts of the betting industry are. Where other betting sites have adapted a 100-year-old infrastructure to retro-fit the smartphone revolution, the Bookee app is specifically designed for mobile use only.”

 

By winning the Bright Minds Showcase, Bookee will receive four hours of mentoring each from Mark Blandford, founder of Sportingbet and industry investor; Nicky Senyard, founder of Income Access; Melissa Blau, founder of iGaming Capital; and multi-family office, Boston.co.im who will provide payment and international development consulting. The package also includes professional services packages including legal advice from iGaming legal experts Harris Hagan; specialist accountants BDO, creative specialists Vegas Kings, iGaming public relations experts Lyceum Media and compliance specialists NMI. This services package provides essential iGaming expertise in areas crucial for entrepreneurs developing their businesses in this sector.
