Under Kristin Geer’s leadership, Bleachr, a mobile sports app builder based in Minneapolis, launched its tennis scores and stats app, TennisOne, in January, winning the Tennis Industry Association’s 2020 Innovation Challenge Award. It also launched CrowdView Live, an interactive face-to-face mobile watch party platform, in July.
Geer makes it her mission to help grow Minnesota’s tech base by hiring individuals within the state rather than outsourcing. She seeks to create a work culture around open communication and giving employees ownership of products they build and the power to shape their career direction. Bleachr was named one of the Minneapolis-St. Paul Business Journal’s Best Places to Work in 2020.
