Kolibri Games Founders On 2020 Forbes Under 30 List

Forbes Magazine Has Included the Kolibri Games Founders in This Year’s List of Outstanding Pioneers in the DACH Region

November 2020 | Janosch Sadowski, Daniel Stammler and Oliver Löffler, co-founders of Berlin-based mobile games studio Kolibri Games, have secured a spot on the prestigious Forbes Under 30 list. 

With Under 30, the German-language edition of Forbes annually honors young pioneers from Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Candidates include founders, investors, activists and publicists, e-sports stars or tennis professionals – all of them are younger than 30 years old and have achieved outstanding results in their field or are working on solutions and products that make our world a better place.

A top-class jury consisting of Lisa Townsend (Vice President People, Omio), Valentin Stalf (Co-Founder & CEO, N26) and Hanna Reinermann (Global Head of Talent Management, Henkel) selected the 30 Under 30 per country from over 1,500 nominations. 

Janosch Sadowski, Co-Founder and Co-CEO of Kolibri Games, says:

2020 has been a uniquely challenging year for everyone – across all industries and professions. We are happy to see that, despite the difficult circumstances, pioneers and innovators across the DACH region are working relentlessly on generating a positive impact on the world we live in. We are humbled to see our own efforts recognized in this way.

Oliver Löffler, Co-Founder and CTO of Kolibri Games, says:

We are incredibly excited about being included in this year’s Under 30 list. As young founders, we always looked up to the role-model entrepreneurs and pioneers that were honored each year. Making the selection ourselves is a major personal milestone for us. We hope that with our story we, too, can be an inspiration for young founders out there to commit and make their dream their reality.
