#LFG

Gamerlink started with a problem, as so many businesses do. Two friends, who had been gaming together their entire year of school, weren’t going to be a few doors down the hall anymore. What would they do?

They made an app, of course! And with a little kickstart from Fanshawe College’s Research and Innovation Day, Gamerlink was born.

Gamerlink is the #1 #LFG (Looking for Group) app available on the market. With cross-platform support and a dedication to linking like-minded gamers while they play, they’ve found major success in doing something they love and the future is only looking up!

We asked Ryan Figueiredo a few questions on what’s been crucial for their success and for a bit of advice for new entrepreneurs.

What does your business do?

GamerLink is mobile application that allows gamers to connect for better online multiplayer experiences. GamerLink consolidates your gaming network through a universal game library and friends list. Allowing you to build and maintain positive lasting connections across all games and platforms.

What do you hope to achieve with your business? What does success look like?

Success is building a product they gamers love and use on a regular basis. We hope to achieve becoming a core part of every gamers life.

As an entrepreneur, what is one thing you couldn’t live without?

Internet! When this goes down not only can we not work but online gaming and our app rely on it 😀

What advice do you have for someone wanting to start their own business?

Take every opportunity you can get and network, network, network.

One brag. One drag. What was a struggle for you and your business and how did you overcome it? What is going really well for you?

Bringing on new users. We faced a serious chicken and the egg problem which was very difficult to overcome. We achieved this with narrowing our focus and a lot of tedious man hours. Today we have over 100k Monthly Active Users and that is extremely exciting for us.

If you had a slogan, what would it be?

Connecting gamers for better online multiplayer experiences.
