Online gambling achievementJuly 28, 2008, 9:47 am (10 years ago)
Positive business reading issue on the Internet news website The Times Online this weekend contained a part about David Copeland (30), a Scots online gambling drafting expert who has established a booming worldwide corporation and thinks that the U.S. Internet gambling market is going to reduce its official fetters in the future.
Four years ago he began a communication board called Bettingjobs, increasing it into a specialized online gambling profit-making employment business that provides work for s 25 people in Malta, Singapore and Costa Rica in addition to his home in Kilbride, Scotland.
Unluckily, it seemed like his achievement is not completely treasured by Business Gateway, the UK government’s business development agency, whom he came within reach of for support for additional development.
“I was surprised when it was recommended I ought to obtain a 30 % wage cut to prove I was serious,” explained Copeland. “After building a company up to providing work for 25 people from scratch, it should be apparent that I am by now very serious about it.
According to The Times Online, Copeland was working in employment in London when he recognized a possible gap in the business as the number of clients planning to employ people for the gambling business started to go up.
“Online gambling was ready to expand and required workers with precise knowledge,” he added.
The company swiftly worked well and made some actions to move into small building on Glasgow’s south side. By the end of last year, it required additional room and moved into its East Kilbride HQ. This year Copeland started small offices in Malta, Singapore and Costa Rica. “Costa Rica is perfect since it is on the same timeline for the main markets of North, South and Central America,” he explained.
Copeland wishes to be on the American continent. He considers the world’s major market is going to launch sooner than expected.
“There is a assessment and weight to direct the US to online gambling,” noted Copeland. Yet without the US, there are chances for development.
“We have enlarged the market by 100 percent year after year and that is to a certain extent because of our employees being very motivated. Many of them are under 30, so they actually comprehend the function of the business.”
Copeland does not see signs of a recession reaching the online business. However, he is as well focusing on the other market investments. An enthusiastic golfer, he is taking into account to make an investment in a golf training aid, but still thinks his home country have the ability to do much more to assist people build up businesses.
