Scopely is a next-generation mobile entertainment network founded in 2011 by social gaming entrepreneur, Walter Driver; former Applied Semantics co-founder, Eytan Elbaz; former lead software developer on MySpace’s Developer Platform, Ankur Bulsara; and startup veteran, Eric Futoran.

Scopely is redefining the way social games are developed, distributed and monetized. Through its developer program, Scopely works with independent gaming studios to co-develop multiplayer games that leverage its platform for technology, distribution, marketing and monetization. This levels the playing field, allowing independent game developers to compete head-to-head against the largest game companies in the world in the battle for reach, revenue and users.
