Interview with David Perry: From Humble Beginnings to the $380M Exit of Gaikai and the Recent Launch of Carro - an E-Commerce Disruptor with 30K Shopify Brands Raw and Real Entrepreneurship

    • Entrepreneurship

In this episode, Susan interviews David Perry, a 30-year veteran of the gaming industry. He started by making games just for fun – he had no idea there was any money to be made. His first game, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, went on to be number one in the charts.

He continued his path doing things “just for fun” and was also the creator of the popular games like the Matrix, Terminator and cult classic, Earthworm Jim.

He started asking himself, if movies and music could be streamed, why not video games?  From that idea, he created Gaikai. David went on to sell Gaikai to Sony PlayStation for $380 million and that company has been instrumental in creating the livestream foundation for video gaming in the cloud.

David is now the CEO of Carro, a new e-commerce partnership network used by over 30K Shopify brands with over 320M visitors a month. Carro (GetCarro.com) helps brands with their e-commerce and sales by partnering with other brands in the network.

David credits his success to having fun doing what he loves. You will ultimately find opportunity where you least expect it, and innovation through trying to build on that opportunity until you cannot beat it.
