Team members from Canadian mobile game and app maker Gogii Games are expanding in Charlottetown with the launch of their sister company known as RevIQ.
The company focuses on revenue optimization and business intelligence for mobile games and apps.
“The superb community of talented game developers, experienced producers, and skilled product managers that exist in Charlottetown make the city a hub for tech-driven companies like ours,” said John Kimmel, managing director of RevIQ. “The support provided by the province shows that the Island is open for businesses like ours to get up to speed quickly.
"P.E.I. just gets it,” he said.
George Donovan, CEO of Gogii Games and adviser to RevIQ, emphasized how the tech sector in P.E.I. is leading Atlantic Canada into the future.
“Founding a company in Charlottetown to work with the elite of the mobile apps and games world was an obvious choice,” Donovan said. “The strong community and mature industry here rival those across Canada.”
RevIQ is housed in the LaunchPad P.E.I. space at the Atlantic Technology Centre in Charlottetown.
RevIQ is building a team of data analysts, business analysts and experienced product managers to work with mobile game and app developers to identify and develop revenue streams for new and existing products. The company has seven employees working now with plans to expand in 2016.
“RevIQ’s decision to open operations to Charlottetown says a lot about the province’s reputation as a technology hub,” said Minister of Economic Development and Tourism Heath MacDonald. “The province is committed to attracting new companies by demonstrating our efforts to support and develop new businesses and new ideas. We are also committed to creating an environment where businesses like RevIQ can succeed by fostering the development of skilled workers through our post secondary institutions, reducing red tape, and identifying and developing new markets.”
