About Us

GameyGram is a women-owned technology company that has reimagined the greeting, gifting, and mobile gaming markets. We are developing a game-changing virtual solution that we believe will disrupt several multi-billion dollar markets. GameyGram was created to enable people to celebrate and experience all of life’s milestones in an exciting new way — we’re so glad you’re joining us on this journey as we are still developing this jaw dropping new software.

Who We Are

We are proudly majority women-owned at GameyGram. We love that we are able to empower women in STEM and beyond to provide them with career opportunities working on a new software product. Our co-founders are Sherry Carani and Cathy (CJ) Josey, our CEO is Carin Obad, and our general counsel is Jivka Apostolova. As women, we grew up often ostracized in an industry that we loved. With GameyGram, we’ve created a space that allows women and men to use their creativity to help us carefully design and execute this wonderful, new software product. We can’t wait to continue growing our team as our software grows!
