Kristin Geer

Co-founder and CEO, Bleachr

Description

As the co-founder and CEO of Bleachr, a Minneapolis-based sports tech company, Kristin Geer has made it her mission to grow Minnesota’s tech talent base by building a strong local team rather than outsourcing work overseas. Geer created Bleachr in 2015 as she noticed audience migration from TV to mobile apps for sports content. The company turns passive viewing into an interactive event, so Bleachr was well positioned to weather the pandemic storm, helping sports organizations monetize remote fans through livestreaming. Today, Bleachr develops white-label custom apps for sports clients, including Duke University's men's basketball, as well as having its own proprietary apps like TennisONE and the Bleachr app.
