It all started with a missed kiss… 💋
KissCam Founder and CEO, Dana Veitch was on a date at a Denver Nuggets game. As the KissCam segment was taking place, Dana and his girlfriend were figuring out who would kiss whom if they were featured on the coveted JumboTron. Disappointed that they did not get their five seconds of fame, Veitch wondered how many other people in the arena wanted to engage in the KissCam experience. Veitch subsequently discovered that “KissCam” wasn’t trademarked. Veitch and his company, KissCam, LLC now own the KissCam trademark worldwide. He then developed and built the KissCam contest app that has been downloaded and enjoyed by tens of thousands of people around the World.
