Brad Griffith – CEO, Gametime
Founder Brad Griffith, formerly a senior financial analyst for Google, developed the idea of a digital instant-ticketing system for mobile devices when he missed the first inning of an October 2012 National League Championship Series game between the San Francisco Giants and the St. Louis Cardinals. Griffith had realized too late that, in order to validate the tickets, he had to print them out. He was convinced that there had to be a simpler way to purchase event tickets, and eventually decided to start developing an app that would fit this purpose and founded San Francisco-based Gametime United to go with it. The resulting product was launched for smartphones running iOS in May 2013. An Android version of the app followed in March 2014, and one for Apple Watch devices was released in May 2015.
