Shanti Bergel

Managing Director

Shanti is a games producer turned digital entertainment investor.

 

He has devoted nearly 30 years to the game industry in roles ranging from product management to corporate development at companies like Electronic Arts, FunPlus, Playfish, and GREE. His fascination with how changes in technology and distribution affect products and community led him from traditional AAA in the 90s to MMOs and free to play in the 2000s, then on to social and mobile in the 2010s, and finally to cloud and omni-platform today.

 

As an investor, Shanti is proud to work alongside some of the most ambitious and talented founders in the business.
