Episode 3- Leo Vesperini- Beyond Mythical success
Pour la version française, cliquez ici
One argument that we hear in France a lot is that France builds many great things but they’re terrible with marketing and companies often struggle to promote their great offerings around the world. What we learn today with Mythic Games founder Léonidas Versperini is that bien sûr, tout est possible.
Following a successful publishing career writing about board and tabletop games, Leo saw the increasing difficulties of being in the print industry and shifted gears into the game market itself. Thanks to his broad network of fellow game enthusiasts and craftspeople around the world, Leo put together a truly global team to build an enormously successful Kickstarter campaign, with more to follow.
Anyone who listens to Leo will quickly hear his passion for what he does. He’s also a naturally gifted salesperson. Leo listens to his customers, embraces their feedback, and then exceeds expectations. This is the way business should be done.
Following a successful partnership for the creation of Mythic Battles: Pantheon, Mythic Games learned many helpful lessons and is moving forward with a second Kickstarter campaign for their new game, Time of Legends: Joan of Arc. (SPOILER ALERT: France still defeats England in the Hundred Years’ War.)
It’s hard to listen to Leo talk about his company and not get excited. And for good reason! They’re doing exciting things and marketing in exciting ways! For those unsure of what a startup founder - regardless of industry - sounds like, this is it.
