GamerDNA is an online community for sharing game experiences and discovering new games being enjoyed by people with similar interests. GamerDNA aims to know gamers better than anyone in the world. Members develop a unique gamer identity - their“gamerDNA” - that records gameplay history from the places they play (such as Xbox Live® or Xfire) and allows them to share these experiences via popular social media applications like Twitter and Tumblr. GamerDNA has amassed the largest proprietary database of gameplay patterns in the world. The Company analyzes and packages this data so it can better understand why gamers like the games they do.
GamerDNA.com and the other AlwaysOn East 100 winners will be recognized at the Venture Summit East Conference at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Boston, MA, on May 20-22. This two-and-a-half day executive conference is co-presented by J.P. Morgan and Forbes and will feature presentations and high-level debates from the most influential institutional investors, venture capitalists, corporate buyers, investment bankers and research analysts in the Eastern US.
“It’s no secret that technology and innovation are vital to bringing our country out of economic recession,” said Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn.“The companies on this year’s list have not only created innovative technologies that solve real business problems, but have stimulated economic growth through the generation of new jobs. I congratulate every winner selected for this year’s award and wish them all tremendous success in the future.”
