Why Epic Games Took 25 Years to Make Fortnite

John Coogan
Join my community at http://JohnCoogan.com (enter your email) Epic Games is such an interesting company. 30 years in the making, it's not really a startup anymore, but I think they are going to have a big impact on technology broadly over the next decade. I didn't even get to mention all the cool things they are doing with virtual production on shows like The Mandalorian. Hoping to do a follow up soon!

I've been an entrepreneur for nearly a decade across multiple companies. I've done a lot of work in silicon valley, so that's mostly what I talk about. I've raised over 10 rounds of venture capital totaling over $100m in total funding. I work mostly in tech-enabled consumer packaged goods, meaning I use software to make the best products possible and then deliver them to the widest possible audience. I'm a big fan of machine learning, python programming, and motion graphics.
