GAMEVIL CEO James Song has been selected as one of 25 finalists for BusinessWeek's "Best Young Entrepreneur in Asia."
GAMEVIL, a mobile games publisher headquartered in Los Angeles and in Seoul, Korea, was founded in 2000.
In a BusinessWeek article, Song talks about his passion for entrepreneurship and games, as well as his experience managing a company.
"I was so indulged with entrepreneurship, and liked the idea of challenging barriers and what seems impossible in society," he said, indicating that the concept of entrepreneurship was still new in Korea as recently as ten years ago.
"I thought that games were not just children's play, but could also be a new social interactive media combined with new IT technology of the future.
"I've learned a lot along the way about how to manage people with more years of work experience than me, as well as the importance of strategic thinking, especially on a global level," he said.
