A 2019 Global Game Industry “50 Over 50", who just began a $2 million raise (to add to the $500k+ previously raised). If you're interested in generating ROI from our next dollar, please reach out.
A lifetime of entrepreneurial experience (founder, consultant & investor), plus 12 years as a university educator (Bachelors & Masters), provide me with unique insights into what makes startups successful. I'm using these (project management-based) insights at Burnout Game Ventures to create economic development via game development. We've raised more than $500k, have a $billion Team, and dozens of startups/projects in the pipeline. And, with more than 700 people in our Talent Pool, we have no need for outsourced work, thanks.
