The game layer on top of the world… Seth Priebatsch

on August 20, 2010

This decade is the “decade of games”… of course from TED.

Two things you’ll notice about Seth Priebatsch: One, his infectious, get-you-out-of-your-chair enthusiasm. Two, the inventory of entrepreneurial feats he’s managed to accumulate at a remarkably young age. The 21-year-old founded his first startup at age 12, and by age 18, he’d founded another — PostcardTech, which makes interactive marketing tours for CD-ROM.

Now he’s working on SCVNGR, “a massive experiment in building a mobile game together.” Backed by Google Ventures, the SCVNGR platform lets organizations tap into the power of cell phones and smart mobile devices to offer customized adventures — outside of the office, beyond the screen, in the real world.

“Their goal? To turn scavenger hunts into a business by offering companies, universities, and other organizations a platform on which they can build city (or campus) spanning activities.”
