A fellow games entrepreneur just shared with me this youtube video of the keynote I did this summer at Casual Connect titled: “Hunting the next Supercell”. This presentation is based on the work I have been doing with Mattias Ljungman and Stephen Thorne in the Atomico games investment team first as an Entrepreneur in Residence and then as a Venture Partner. Since my work at Atomico is done in parallel with running eRepublik Labs (that I sold to Stillfront in 2017), I try to have a candid & direct approach about why games is an interesting space for VC and what we base our investment decisions on in this space. Hope you find this useful.

Atomico Game investments past and present include: Rovio, Supercell, Bossa Studios, Teatime and OhBibi


Today I just read what I think is the best definition of what a CEO’s job is and should be. It’s taken from a blog post by Walt Mossberg of AllThingsD about Steve Jobs. Regardless of wetter its an accurate definition of what Steve Jobs did, it really resonates with me as being exactly what a great CEO should be about.

Here is the quote:
“He did what a CEO should: Hired and inspired great people; managed for the long term, not the quarter or the short-term stock price; made big bets and took big risks. He insisted on the highest product quality and on building things to delight and empower actual users, not intermediaries like corporate IT directors or wireless carriers. And he could sell. Man, he could sell.”

You don’t need a manual on how to be a good CEO, focus on the above and you are off to a pretty good start. Add to this “never never never give up” and you have a pretty good entrepreneur.
