Rick Brownlow is co-founder of Geektastic.com, a serial entrepreneur, tech evangelist and geek who can’t write a line of code.
After 10 years in the insurance industry in the 1990's, risk-managing everything from tigers in TV commercials to million pound online lotteries Rick founded Chimaera Games in 2002, a mobile casino and games start up (right product, five years too early).
Rick then joined the founding team at mobile tech start-up Mfuse, who quickly became the leading provider of mobile software to most of the UK’s betting operators.
In 2010, Rick jumped the fence to work on a new role within Sportingbet Plc as their Head of Mobile, quickly taking the vertical from zero to 20% of their business before going back to what he likes best – fast moving start ups, founding Bonza Gaming, a JV between Unibet and Plumbee; disrupting the online gambling industry with a Facebook integrated real money app Bonza Slots.
Unibet acquired 100% of the business in early 2015 leaving Rick to move away from the gambling industry to focus on Geektastic.
