Athenascope wants to change the way we play and watch games together.

Athenascope captures your top gaming moments, automatically creating highlight videos so you can relive last night’s glory and share it with friends. Using cutting-edge developments in computer vision and artificial intelligence, Athenascope analyzes gameplay and automatically surfaces the most important moments and information. The company has raised $2.5 million in seed funding led by First Round Capital, with the fund’s founder Josh Kopelman joining the board of directors. Athenascope was founded in 2018 by Chris Kirmse, creator of Xfire, and is based in Mountain View, California.
