HQ Trivia– a live, video game show-style test app– introduced in August 2017 with Kroll acting as primary innovation officer.
The app was an instantaneous viral hit, thanks in part to its silly, charming host and the capability to win genuine prize money. Previously this year, the app was at the top of the App Shop charts for weeks at a time.
However simply as rapidly as the app went viral, its appeal faded and it dealt with internal chaos of its own. In September, the business supposedly dislodged Yusupov as CEO and changed him with Kroll. And quickly prior to Kroll was designated CEO, an HQ Trivia worker supposedly submitted a grievance over Kroll’s “aggressive management design.”
In spite of HQ’s concerns, the business had actually revealed prepare for a 2nd “Wheel of Fortune”- design video game and has actually been generating income off sponsorship offers and in-app purchases.
HQ closed a $15 million financing round in March and is anticipated to do $10 million in profits in2018
