It all started with a missed kiss...
In 2011, KissCam Founder and CEO, Dana Veitch, was at a Denver Nuggets basketball game when the kiss cam segment began. He and his date were disappointed that they were not selected to be featured on the arena’s Jumbotron. Dana wondered how many other people would like to participate in the kiss cam experience. Thoughts of thousands of people looking to share some PDA or fun friends and family photos at the event led Dana to trademark "KissCam" and develop the KissCam app.
KissCam LLC’s mission is to bring the 1-2 minute “kiss cam” live video segment, which is mainly seen in North American arenas, into the hands of users globally via its smartphone app. The real value of digitizing the KissCam app is in the sponsorship revenue and data acquisition it can provide to the owners of entertainment venues, professional sports teams, celebrities and more.
KissCam LLC is a Colorado limited liability company that owns the trademark rights for “KissCam” and “KissCam.com” in the United States and worldwide. These rights are registered with 24-member countries within the Madrid Protocol including the United Kingdom and the European Union. KissCam’s trademarks are also registered in Japan, South Korea, China, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and India.
