My name is Rob Paulsen, and I am the Co-founder and VP of Business Development at vANO.io. This year, we’re celebrating the 30th anniversary of what we originally started. We started vanoss.io with a vision of developing a platform for users to play mobile games for just 15$, and to build the largest and most diverse set of mobile games in the world.
We built a new gaming platform, and we needed to hire 10k devs.
I am super excited to share that vANO has grown to over 2b users! We’re growing at a rapid pace but it feels like we’re always on a mission to help people become better human beings.
We are thrilled that a couple of years ago we had the opportunity to partner with Kansha, one of the top five most successful MMOs in the world. Kansha was founded by former Nintendo president Satoru Iwata and CEO Eiji Shimoda. Old blog: As the founder of Kansha we were in charge of the mobile game which was on Windows Phone. We built up a team of top developers. But the game was struggling.
One of the reasons why the gaming industry is thriving in Korea is that we made a lot of progress in the mobile industry. From our inception, Kansha has been the most highly regarded mobile RPG in Korea. We grew to one of the largest Android gamers in the world and we even expanded into the games section from PC games. We built a game, which we sold into multiple territories and it is now one of the top 5 RPG games in the world.
We don’t always need a platform. We’re big fans of what platforms do for their communities, and when you look at the biggest games in the world today, they all have one thing in common. They are mobile games. And for that reason, I bet most people have heard of the following platforms by now. Facebook, Youtube, Snapchat, Pinterest, Instagram, Snapchat, Snapchat, Twitch, Skype, Amazon and Google.
We’re building a $500 million dollar global gaming platform. We look at things from a global perspective and also focus on player experiences. We believe that players should be able to play their favorite games in a way that appeals to everyone across every gaming platform, as well as on a mobile device that is the best mobile device for gaming. We also believe that it is important to create gaming experiences that are fun.
