Podcast: Kabam founder on scaling globally and designing for different platforms

3 Comments

Online game company Kabam may have scaled globally too quickly, admits the company’s founder, Kevin Chou, in this podcast interview. But startups looking to take on the world could learn a lot from this chat with Chou who explains what companies need know (hint: don’t just lump everyone outside the U.S. together). Chou also talks about the role of design as his company changed from being Facebook-centric to more mobile.

I am writing to you about wartunes. I have been playing it a bit and the place they send us to for help tickets does not work with kabam servers, I have tried to tell your people this that answer questions in support, but they cant seem to understand and keep sending me back to the same place, maybe you could make sure that we can get support tickets through to where they send us, we can get to the page, but when we go to write the ticket we cant finish it, we need to be added or a patch needs to be made so we can get the support we deserve, thx

Thanks for being on the show, Kevin. Next time — how about even just a teeny tiny hint that you’ll be doing a massive Fast and Furious style game? :)

Thanks for the opportunity Chris! I had a lot of fun in this conversation
