Award for Iforium's Achievement in Entrepreneurship

Craig Osborne, Founder of Iforium 

Iforium, recognised for Achievement in Entrepreneurship and seeking new talent to join its expanding operations.

Isle of Man based E-gaming Software Company Iforium has been presented with an award for Achievement in Entrepreneurship.

Iforium is a fast growing software development company specialising in the development of E-Gaming Sports Betting and Casino management platforms. The company has led the way with industry innovations such as Gameflex, a platform which allows a gaming operator to seamlessly combine premium gaming content under a common bonus and loyalty points system. Now in a phase of rapid growth, the company seeks new talent to join their expanding operations.

Isle of Man Business Incubator presented the award in recognition of Iforium’s contribution to industry and rapid growth. Iforium follows in the footsteps of last year’s winners Bladon Jets, the company that developed the micro-gas turbine engine and has since entered into a partnership with Jaguar LandRover and attracted investment from Tata.
Craig Osborne, the founder of Iforium commented: “The key to our success is combining one of the most talented technical teams in E-gaming with a clear commercial strategy. Our software engineering practices allow us to continuously innovate in a fast changing industry. Our approach is now leading to significant commercial success. We are constantly looking for new talented developers, automated testers and network engineers to join our team.”

Kate Lord-Brennan of Isle of Man Business Incubator said: “ The business incubator made a difference to Iforium at an important stage of its development. It provided the company with the opportunity to mix with like-minded entrepreneurs, including the team behind Bladon Jets. We wish Iforium continued success.”
