About the company

Gamers’ Grid is the ultimate networking platform for gamers. Gamers are able to use our platform to find new players to play with, but not just any players like they would in a regular game server or a forum board. They are able to find the right players they want to play with. With Gamers Grid players never have to worry about playing alone regardless of what they play, how they play or when they play. Our platform lets users meet new gamers, keep up with their friends, schedule gaming events and build teams to compete against others. There are billions of players in the world playing video games and the majority of games played have a social environment, requiring teamwork and communication for success. This has left a void because it’s not easy to find people you get along with to play together. Sure, when the new Call of Duty game comes out, all your friends go to buy it and play it relentlessly every day, but then life calls and all of a sudden your friends stop playing one after the other. Leaving you to play alone with strangers that don’t cooperate and fail to communicate. Gamers Grid is more than just a Gamer Finder it’s a way for people to make long lasting connections

As CEO, Clyde sets and executes the strategic vision of the company: to create enjoyable experiences for gamers by connecting them and allowing them to stay in touch with their friends across all gaming platforms. Born in France, Clyde lived in both Paris and the United States with his father until the age of thirteen when he permanently moved to the United States and attended high school in Oakland, California.
