The MBA intake 2018 got the chance of visiting madhead, a Hong Kong based award-winning game developer (its most famous mobile game Tower of Saviors is a top seller in Southeast Asia).
We were received by founder and UST alumnus Terry Tsang. Not only did we learn about the ins and outs of the gaming industry, which is not a traditional industry we get much exposure to, but Terry also very candidly shared about his experience of building a company from scratch.
To finish the presentation, Terry shared his 3 takeaways on success:
- the role of luck, but most importantly the attitude of feeling lucky
- genuinely care for your users and their feeling
- be a good and ethical person, no matter what (Terry shared how he declined to IPO because it wouldn't benefit the users on the long term)
Thank you for having us Terry, we definitely feel very lucky to be able to learn from you first hand!
