Nigel Eccles is the co-founder and former CEO of FanDuel and current CEO and co-founder of Flick.
Once valued at $1.5billion, FanDuel is not only the most successful unicorn to come out of Europe, but it helped create the fantasy sports world that exists in the U.S. today. Nigel, who hails from Tyrone, will take us through the roller coaster of navigating the intricate world of sports gambling, the rise of e-sports and the importance of pivoting in business.
