Why Chalkline?

About Chalkline

Founded in early 2016, Chalkline Sports combines industry expertise from sports betting, technology, business intelligence, media and digital marketing.

Chalkline Sports was built on the premise that sports betting operators, affiliates and media companies in high-growth markets (North America and Africa) are fundamentally under-served. Customers demand snack-sized, mobile-first engagement and personalization during the 150 times they check their phones each day.

Operators, affiliates and media companies require access to cost-effective engagement tools to communicate more powerfully with an ever mobile-first world. And to harness real-time business intelligence tools to continuously measure and encourage scalable growth.

Chalkline is laser-focused on building scalable technology that solves these business challenges and seamlessly integrates with gaming and media operations to drive value across the enterprise.
