Sightline and GeoComply Host Grand Opening of Las Vegas Offices

Tech unicorns unveil office space at UNLV Harry Reid Research & Technology Park

LAS VEGAS – (May 2, 2023) – Sightline® and GeoComply today hosted the grand opening of their new offices at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) Harry Reid Research & Technology Park. Dignitaries attending the ribbon-cutting event included UNLV President Dr. Keith Whitfield, U.S. Representative Susie Lee, UNLV Vice President of Economic Development Bo Bernhard, staff from the local offices of U.S. Representatives Dina Titus and Steven Horsford, and leaders from across the casino gaming industry.

The new 10,000+ square foot Las Vegas offices will be a home base for more than 100 staff from both companies. The office serves as the global headquarters for Sightline, the U.S. sports betting and casino gaming market’s leading digital payments provider and mobile app developer. The office also hosts GeoComply, an award-winning fraud prevention and cybersecurity solutions company that detects location fraud and helps verify a user’s true digital identity. The Las Vegas location will serve as GeoComply’s U.S. headquarters, with their global headquarters remaining in Vancouver, British Columbia.

The combined space is an innovation hub for the companies, which have both achieved “unicorn” status with valuations exceeding $1 billion. The office is in the same building as UNLV’s Black Fire Innovation, a gaming industry center for research, development and innovation.

“Las Vegas is a natural home for our U.S. headquarters. We are thrilled to be at Black Fire, as it is a hub to unite innovative technology and hospitality within the US gaming industry,” said Anna Sainsbury, Co-Founder & CEO, GeoComply. “The region’s large pool of experienced gaming industry professionals allows us to recruit top-level talent who know compliance, gaming operations, the experiences players want, and how to innovate within a highly regulated market. Being in Las Vegas gives our team easy access to our customers so we can connect, collaborate and problem solve.”

“It is nothing short of incredible to see how Las Vegas has transformed into a tech hub since Sightline was founded a dozen years ago,” said Sightline Co-founder and Co-CEO Omer Sattar. “Having our offices within UNLV and their Black Fire Innovation center will help ensure we have the resources necessary to continue to grow, innovate, and deliver for our clients.”

“As we thought about Sightline’s incredible growth over the past few years, we knew we wanted a new office space to provide our employees with a great space and drive our company into its next successful chapter,” said Joe Pappano, Sightline Co-CEO. “This office will provide the Sightline team with a tremendous base of operations to help reach even greater heights.”
