Who we are: We’re on a mission of “Helping sports fans enjoy watching their favourite sports”.

Kero focuses on building proprietary algorithms that ingest real time play by play sports data and output curated in-game micro betting markets every 30 seconds that deliver an instant gratification betting experience.

Our thesis is that sportsbetting products of the future will need to incorporate the same ingredients that make today's mass consumer technology popular. They are: instant gratification, social, and most importantly "mindless consumption".
