  • No Sour Grapes for Viker

    No Sour Grapes for Viker

    New Founder Insights episode with the co-founder of Viker Dan Beasley, on their launch of Grapes.  Our entrepreneur-in-residence Rich Robinson discusses with Dan, assessing how two veteran game developer partners came together to launch Viker based on combined decades of experience and insights. Dan and Rich talk about the importance of Intellectual Property, specifically "family-friendly global entertainment IP" and how they wanted to build their own IP, which spawned the idea of Grapes.  Combining that with super fun and engaging gameplay has been a secret to their success. They then dig deep into platform strategy starting with mobile, expanding to Roblox and ultimately Steam and their vision to extend Grapes to as many platforms as possible.   On the pod, Dan also explores their origin story more deeply and how the two founders have emphasized authenticity and engagement with their community as keys to their success.

  • Dogs in the Metaverse - Dogami

    Dogs in the Metaverse - Dogami

    New Founder Insights episode with the co-founder of Dogami Kristofer Dayne Penseyres on their Web3 Virtual Pet from outer space - Dogami. Kristofer and our entrepreneur-in-residence Rich Robinson discuss how the virtual pet category gets reinvented every time there is a new platform and paradigm and Web3 is no different. They discuss how their concept of creating a lore and storyline of dogs from outer space is portrayed not only in the on-chain gaming experience but also through digital comic books, creating that connection with the user in the same way that pets create a connection with their owners in the real world. They dig into the origin story of the company and how each co-founder brings in their unique skill sets and backgrounds to put together a compelling brand and company. On the pod, Rich and Kristofer explore Kristofer’s entrepreneurial journey, starting from his days as a professional actor and how those acting skills and most especially improvisational acting concepts help him be both a better team player and the most optimal version of his entrepreneurial self.

  • From Axie Infinity to Ronin: Onboarding Gamers to Web3

    From Axie Infinity to Ronin: Onboarding Gamers to Web3

    New Founder Insights episode with Jihoz (Jeffrey Zirlin), the co-founder of Sky Mavis and creator of Axie Infinity! We discuss how Jihoz and his team have been busy building and how they are coming back strong with their extended platform centered around Web3 gaming. Jihoz and our entrepreneur-in-residence Rich Robinson chat about the origin of the company, the speed of its growth following the launch of the Ronin side chain, and the size of the company at its peak when it reached millions of users and nearly 12 million NFTs sold. Even today with 150,000 DAU, they estimate that they command nearly two-thirds of the Web3 gaming space. They cover the phenomenal rise of scholarships for gamers that subsequently led to a surge of gaming guilds and the involvement of millions of scholars playing Axies in the Philippines, Southeast Asia and around the world. On the pod, they explore the platform that Sky Mavis has rolled out with Ronin to enforce creator royalties and the challenges and lessons learned from building and maintaining its infrastructure. ⭐Jeffrey 'Jihoz' Zirlin, co-founder of Sky Mavis 🔹 The Founder Insights Podcast is brought to you by Animoca Brands' entrepreneur-in-residence, Richard Robinson.
