About the founders/CEO:
Jellysmack was founded in 2016 by entrepreneurs and long-time friends Michael Philippe, Robin Sabban and Swann Maizil. The company was born after Swann launched a football-focused passion project called The Sport Dealer and used data analytics to fuel impressive growth in just a few months. He teamed up with Michael and Robin who had previously founded a digital media company called Cafeyn (formerly Le Kiosk) and they used their technology and data-led social growth approach as the foundation of Jellysmack’s business model. After building and scaling multiple cross-platform social communities across various genres like beauty, gaming, and sports, they expanded their scope to help individual video creators and brands do the same.
