Polemos is a global Gaming company that has developed advanced proprietary asset management solutions, non-collateralised lending solutions, proprietary learning management systems (LMS), advanced game/player data analytics solutions, and range of gaming focussed media and entertainment assets. Polemos was ideated and launched in early 2020 by five international cofounders that have investment and business interests in strategically aligned industry sectors.
