We are Abios, a Stockholm based esports company gathering, enriching and distributing engaging data and statistics. We help our partners distribute their data assets and our customers leverage data to push the envelope with their products and apps, and let their users dig into data from where the action is!
Abios was founded in the dawn of esports, with a mission to facilitate and enrich the esports experience. Since the very beginning we have put a lot of effort into providing accurate data about matches, tournaments and teams within the esports scene. Our first endeavour was a community and consumer product, which we still support. But over time the demand for engaging data grew amongst other businesses, this became the start of a new chapter for Abios.
As 2015 came to an end, we shifted our focus from consumer products to B2B sales of data. We now proudly work with a number of world-leading esports and gaming brands, ranging from news sites and forums to betting operations. Through our partners we make data and content available to millions of unique esports users every month, powering tens of millions of page views with captivating content.
We provide world-leading esports data and content to a variety of industries and companies. By collecting and supplying everything from team and player history to live scores, Abios helps many established and growing companies improve their products. At the same time, we help our data partners distribute and monetise their data. As a result, Abios contributes to the entirety of esports by improving the overall accessibility of information and data for the esports viewers. We want to help the esports industry continue its strong growth, while staying true to our original mission.
Oskar and Anton sat down together while studying at the Stockholm School of Economics and Royal Institute of Technology and discussed venturing into the untouched industry of esports.
Abios is incorporated under the official name of Abios Gaming AB. The idea of esports betting must wait, there needs to be structure in esports first and the industry must mature.
The world's first calendar website and TV-guide for esports is launched, covering the top four games. The picture represents our original logo.
Abios joins the student incubator at the Royal Institute of Technology called KTH Innovation.
With some early seed money invested by the founders Abios starts to employ its first developers and editors part time. The founders are still working for free!
After having been selected as 1/200 applying companies to the Bonnier Accelerator program in autumn of 2014, Abios closes its first round of financing of 5 MSEK.
Abios sponsors and hosts several top tier tournaments such as Viagame House Cup in Dracula's Castle, Transylvania. Abios also works closely with many of the worlds most known streamers.
After receiving numerous inquiries from other firms to use our data, live scores and information the decision is made to start developing a B2B API and become a data provider instead of a consumer site.
Abios raises new capital and adds two new investors as shareholders, strengthening the balance sheet to build and distribute world leading data.
Abios launches the worlds first esports API containing all kinds of live and historical data. It contains everything from fixtures, tournament information and player stats.
As our customer base grew we started to travel to business events around the world to show of our products.
And as our brand brand became associated with quality, we also started to travel to talk about us and the business as a whole to industry peers and analysts.
As traveling becomes more frequent we try to get more of us on the trips to meet customers and have good time!
Our tech has also caught the attention from industry giants. Here Anton and Patrik talk about our infrastructure in front of a 1000+ ppl audience at the AWS Summit.
With the continued growth of Abios it was once again time for new offices and this time we upgraded to the crown jewel of Stockholm. We took over and renovated the entire top floor of Södra Teatern.
In January 2019 we launched the Abios Esports Widgets, our second product line, together with the flagship customer and partner Unibet.
Throughout 2019 our corporate CS:GO team managed to beat and knock out teams like Spotify and Avanza to claim first place in the Swedish CS:GO Corporate League.
Early 2020 we launched an industry leading, data driven, odds feed. A true full life cycle esports odds service.
Let's make esports history together!
