Rush Street Interactive (RSI) has opened two new offices in Bogota and Medellin in Colombia as part of its plans to grow the RushBet brand in Latin America.
RSI’s new 8,000-sq-ft office in Bogota will be its new headquarters for its operations in Latin America, and it includes a full multimedia wall to watch sports, a basketball court marketing team space, poker-themed conference rooms, a stadium-like production set, casino card lamps, and a cafeteria bar that resembles one of RushBet’s sports bars.
Medellin will be home to RSI’s technology hub for Latin America to support its global technology platform. The region was selected due to its support of tech talent via the local government’s substantial investment in its “Valle de Software” initiative to attract IT businesses and train university students in IT fields.
RSI also has a strong network of potential partners and suppliers in the region as more than 163,000 companies from different economic sectors operate in Medellin.
“We are investing in the region’s future and recognize the importance of earning the trust and respect of the communities where we operate,” commented Richard Schwartz, CEO at RSI.
“It’s important to have the brightest and strongest local teams to execute RSI’s ambitious growth strategy.”
RSI noted that the opening of the new offices is an “important step” for its development plans in Colombia, Mexico, and across Latin America.
The RushBet platform has been live in Mexico since June this year, providing online casino and sports betting to customers in the region.
Schwartz added: “These new state-of-the-art offices further exemplify our innovation and continued investment in Latin America and the future growth we expect in the region. It was important for us to invest in creating world-class facilities to continue to attract and retain top industry talent, who play a vital role in RSI’s ongoing growth in Latin America.”
