Whipper has agreed to a representation and advisory deal with former Las Vegas casino owner and gaming and esports industry investor, Stephen Crystal, through his Las Vegas based company, SCCG Management. Crystal will be charged with
assembling Whipper’s next round capital raise of €2.5M Euro in addition to other advisory duties in the gaming and esports verticals.
Crystal brings over 25 years of deal experience and over $1B in transactions in the casino, gaming technology and esports spaces to the Whipper team.
“We’re excited to partner with Stephen! His company, SCCG Management, is forward-looking and is well versed in video games, esports and gaming. Crystal is also well established in Asia and that is to be Whipper’s number one market. We’ve purposefully avoided VC funding – jealously guarding our and our present investors’ considerably valuable equity positions. Stephen has proven he can source strategic and involved high net worth and strategic investors.”, said Clark Westerman, Whipper’s CEO.
Stephen Crystal added, “I know how hot the messaging space is. Whipper is the evolution in messaging. These guys have solved some seminal components that will attract millennials by the droves. They also have a very clear revenue model, and almost no one online today has that.”
Whipper is fresh off a world tour of meeting with potential strategic B2B partners which culminated in an onstage spot at Google’s Firebase Development Summit in Amsterdam two weeks ago. Whipper presented along with Trivago, CNN, Shazam, and the +$3B valuated Home and Away travel site. Whipper Signs with Gaming and Esports Investor and Advisor, Stephen A.
