Angry Birds: Investing in the Big Game

I recently attended a talk, Angry Birds: Investing in the Big Game, where Chris Dark, Senior Investment Manager at venture capital firm Atomico, spoke about Atomico’s recent investment in the game maker Rovio. Chris also shared some general tips for startups and entrepreneurs in the audience looking to work with VC firms. Don’t worry if you weren’t able to attend, sharing is the rule here at buildabrand.

We’ve moved (again): Welcome to buildabrand HQ!

Not that long ago in September 2010 buildabrand made a move to join the London and European tech movers and shakers at TechHub (you might remember reading @TechHub: Silicon Roundabout). Bang in the middle of London’s Silicon Roundabout, we were among developers, entrepreneurs, events, angels, and investors in early stage tech capital. We accelerated our progress; networking, ramping up, hanging with the cool kids, knocking back beers and eating stacks of pizza… exciting times.

One Developer’s take on Technology and Innovation

Work at buildabrand keeps intensifying, leading us to maintain our hunt for creative engineers that are interested in building truly innovative technology. As many of you know, the London tech sector (Silicon Roundabout) has been rapidly growing, which has us thinking about our relationship to Silicon Valley and the idea of technology innovation. Being a developer myself, I felt it was time to add my two cents to the online debate.

Simplicity Is Not Easy

The funny thing about working here at buildabrand ltd. is being involved in engineering something so simply understood that no-one realises what fantastic challenges we overcome to make it happen.
