A technology development and incubation acceleration company that partners with developers via joint ventures, royalty agreements, marketing partnerships and outright purchase agreements

The company not only accelerates mobile app development but also integrates a user acquisition and monetization strategy as part of each business prior to launching. Success is achieved through a combined approach of understanding the games being operated, the audiences that are playing them, and the process that connects the two.
