In the first 12 months from launch, Movellas' platform for “Mobile Novellas” experienced explosive growth, a huge level of commitment from users, and a new model for innovation within the traditional publishing industry.
We worked with CEO and co-creator Per Larsen since the formation of the initial concept. Our focus has been split between finding ways to build the existing community and generating revenue to get the company to a sustainable financial position quickly. Movellas was quick to capitalize on the explosion in fan fiction and the different commercial opportunities that it presented.
“Over the last couple of years I have had the pleasure of having Nate as an advisor and business partner. Most recently Nate helped us launch Movellas.com internationally and once again his impact was great. Nate is one of those rare people who can quickly understand a market, identify the opportunity and translate it into a plan. While other people are still thinking and working on their “slides”, Nate has already raised the funding and sold the product. When I read “Who” by Geoff Smart and Randy Street on hiring A-class people, Nate was the first I thought about because he is that rare A-class guy.” – Per Larsen
