Number One iPhone Game Founder
I had the honor to attend a speech given by Bart Decrem, founder of Tapulous, the company that made Tap Tap Revenge, the number one game downloaded in iTunes. The man is not IT, he is a lawyer and gratuated from Stanford University, but he worked in Silicon Valley for a while. He had an idea and started to contact some investors. Eventually he got $10 million to build the company promising to make $2 billion from the game. His game is a hit and has been downloaded 25 million times and has sold over 2 million songs inside the game. He is brilliant in the widest meaning of that word. Finally thanks to Debra Hollingsworth, our wonderful external affairs coordinator who arranges all these valuable meetings for us.
