Holly Liu

Co-Founder, Kabam

Visiting Partner, Y Combinator

In 2008, Holly and her co-founders were awaiting a wire from their Series B financing. The day the money was supposed to arrive was the day Lehman Brothers collapsed. With no investment money coming in, and ad revenues declining, they built Kabam a mobile gaming company. Nine years later, they sold it for a $1Billion dollars. Holly was in charge of design and has contributed to record revenue growth for Kabam year over year from $0 to $400MM annually. She led the design for Kabam’s award-winning “Kingdoms of Camelot” franchise, which has grossed over $250 million in less than four years. She was also the founding mobile designer for extension Kingdoms of Camelot: Battle for the North, which was the top grossing app on iOS in 2012. Holly has been named in:
