Company Milestones 

The year started for us with our 2021 kickoff, where all departments presented their exciting plans for this year and gave first sneak peeks of what’s to come. We are looking forward to new games, great additions to our bestsellers and soon also the big move to our new Berlin headquarters as our team is ever-expanding.

We Appeared In

Our CEO Daniel spoke to Forbes about reaching the next level with Kolibri Games from its founding days to the recent exit, and what’s ahead for us in 2021. Of course, we also had to check out the buzzing hype around the Clubhouse App and Daniel spoke to Handelsblatt about the success of the new Social App and joining a panel on founding. If you missed the panel, don’t worry, Daniel was also invited on the Taledo Digital Founders/CxO Podcast and talked to Melikshah Ünver about Mobile Gaming and New Work as the New Normal at Kolibri Games.
