Streamloots was launched in closed Beta on January 6th 2018, and opened its doors to everyone in March 2018. Was founded by 4 Spanish Gamers that moved to California for a few months to launch the product.
A few streamers trusted those 4 crazy guys with a Power Point trying to create “Tangible real-time interactions” for streamers. They launched a prototype with 3 streamers and they made more revenue in one night, that the revenue they were doing in one month. Something had just started!
They got a lot of traction in those early days and attracted the attention of a Silicon Valley investor who trusted them and helped to move the company to the Valley for a few months. It was in San Francisco, where they had the opportunity to pitch in front of a few more investors and they decided to pretend the audience was redeeming real-time interactions… so the CEO had to dress up as a unicorn!
Because of the media coverage of that crazy pitch, they ended up raising money to accomplish their vision: make all content creators being able to live with their content!
