Podcast: Kabam founder on scaling globally and designing for different platforms

Online game company Kabam may have scaled globally too quickly, admits the company’s founder, Kevin Chou, in this podcast interview. But startups looking to take on the world could learn a lot from this chat with Chou who explains what companies need know (hint: don’t just lump everyone outside the U.S. together). Chou also talks about the role of design as his company changed from being Facebook-centric to more mobile.
