About Philip

15 years in the videogame industry along with time spent working on B2B SaaS platforms as technical pre-sales, project manager and product manager.

Now back in the videogame industry and building a mobile startup helping players connect with teams. Strong background in eSports - a part of the games industry set to grow to be worth $1B+ by 2019 and an audience size of 400M+.

My startup has been accepted to the Middle East's No.1 tech accelerator - Flat6Labs Abu Dhabi, and I'm looking for a technical co-founder who has backend experience with Azure, MS Server and .Net as that is what the platform is built on currently.

Someone with a passion for videogames or team sports would be ideal as the App also has relevance to the sports industry.
