What gets us out of bed in the morning?

An origin story
for the ages

As someone with 20 years of telecom experience under his belt, Mathieu Duperré had seen countless industry trends come and go – but edge computing felt different. He saw its bold approach to latency reduction as the next frontier in gaming tech, so he pitched his employer on exploring it further.

They humoured him initially, but within a few months the initiative was canned. The company didn’t feel that the gaming market was large or promising enough. Fortunately, their skepticism didn’t deter Mathieu. He knew he had lightning in a bottle, so there was only one thing left to do: quit his long-standing corporate gig to follow his passion.

The first order of business was to research industry conferences. One event in Berlin looked promising, but with zero funding and no product, he was going completely out-of-pocket. It was both pricey and risky, with a ton of downside and a shred of potential upside. To earn himself a free pass, Mathieu jumped on the opportunity to join the event’s hackathon.

Within two weeks, he was onstage in front of the biggest names in the game, presenting the prototype he had pulled out of thin air. The result? First prize. Mathieu was immediately swarmed by execs asking to test his product – which, of course, didn’t exist yet.

Upon touching back down in Montreal, he got straight to work renting a small office, hiring 2 engineers for a prototype, and started plugging away. One year later, they had landed a seed round and haven’t looked back since.

Legendary vision
legendary team

Edgegap was born of the belief that all you need is curiosity, conviction, and passion to hit the ground running. We respect the process, and we hold a special place in our hearts for failure along the path to success – really. As our team evolves, there’s nothing more important than upholding those same values.

Joining Edgegap means jumping into a startup headfirst (fortune favours the bold), gaming after work (only when you’re down – no pressure), and working with a team of industry vets (we’re pretty cool).

Oh, and there’s always a giant bucket of candy in our kitchen.
