Inside Kabam: Building Berlin and buying British businesses
Mobile Entertainment
Building a team with its own dedicated budget to look at not just mobile media, but integrated media, such as television.
Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

Cool interview with Kabam's President Andrew Sheppard. Just once I want to be able to say this:

"Yeah, our revenues rose 100 per cent in 2013 to almost double our forecast for the year.

We ended 2013 with a ton of great momentum. Internally, there's a general excitement and enthusiasm about where we're going, how we're doing it and increasingly why we're doing it  –  people are pretty fired up.

The core of Kabam is a bunch of people who love hardcore games, that are excited about free-to-play, and it's a company that takes its time to think through, plan and attack big market opportunities, whether that's moving to Facebook with a core game, moving to mobile or expanding into Berlin."

Amazing.
