About this event
Manu Gambhir is an 18+ year experienced online gaming executive who has built and sold several online casino ventures where he was involved in every detail - from technology, game design, game math, compliance, marketing, staffing, recruiting and finance. Most recently he built Facebook’s first game where players could win real cash and prizes in a sweepstakes format. This company, Ryzing, was purchased in June 2012 by RockYou Inc. - a prominent Silicon Valley gaming firm.
Prior to founding Ryzing, Gambhir ran Cantor Fitzgerald’s online gaming business in the United Kingdom, a role he assumed when Cantor bought his prior online gaming business, Kismet International. Cantor Casino offered players a wide range of online casino, poker and financial betting games.
Prior to Cantor’s acquisition, Kismet built and marketed Harrods Online Casino targeting the UK market and running on Kismet's proprietary gaming platform which was rated as best in its class by a leading global consulting firm.
Gambhir graduated in 1990 from the Wharton School's Management & Technology program where he received degrees in computer science engineering and entrepreneurial management. He is passionate about games, technology and building great teams!
