Founded by Malika Jacobs, Kingmakers started as a brick-and-mortar board game parlour in Columbus, Ohio in 2014. Adapting to  COVID-19 restrictions, Kingmakers pivoted the physical location, adapting board gameplay to the virtual space. With offices rapidly closing, the Kingmakers team recognized the need to maintain workplace engagement and redesigned their in-person corporate team bonding experience for hybrid environments.

“The changes the pandemic brought into the workforce permanently shifted workplace dynamics,” said Malika Jacobs, CEO and Founder of Kingmakers. “The need for workplace engagement has become essential, making employee satisfaction a top priority for team leaders and human resources professionals. This, coupled with other societal shifts, means that we all need to reimagine our priorities, policies, and tools when it comes to engaging our remote teams.

Kingmakers is an innovative approach to a common workplace event—team bonding—that uses technology as a tool for their virtual platform to change the way we interact with each other at work. Board games bring people together, and at the heart of the service, Kingmakers is dedicated to creating real human connections.
