You Should Know About Me

Key Accomplishments

I founded Red Katana in 2010. We have been developing games ever since for multiple platforms and with different international publishers and customers such as FOX, Unicef, Pepsi, Antonio Banderas, among others.
Most importantly we have been developing our original ideas and IPs and found ways to co-fund them with Investors and Publishers along the way. We launched Brew Masters (still the only Beer Simulation game on iOS and Android), Evil Fight Club (featured by Apple), and our last game Fallen: A2P Protocol (published on Steam after a successful Kickstarter campaign).
Also I collaborate actively with the local gaming community by being the current Vice President of ADVA (Argentinean Videogames Developers Association).
I studied Business at the University of Buenos Aires and later on I did an MBA. Prior to founding Red Katana, I worked for over 10 years in international companies such as Microsoft and AB Inbev in the Marketing department where I learned a lot of business process, methodologies and also met a great network of awesome people.
I love what I do, and want to keep learning, growing, finding ways to make better products every time and helping others in the way.

How I like to work with people
As an Advisor

I´m straightforward, honest and practical. I considered myself as a man of action. I enjoy making things happen. I like the "Lean Start Up" approach for doing business and the "Design Thinking" way of designing new products and experiences. The most important thing in this life is your time so invest it wisely. I enjoy helping others and also chatting with other entrepreneurs and advisors around the Globe.

Robin Alter
They're my friends  •  Business Development and Product Management in Health and Education using wearables, brainwave technology and virtual reality.
Martin makes some of the nicest looking games I have seen. His background in Design and Brand Marketing raises the level of quality in aweso ... me levels. Martin has been running startups for years, has negotated financing, and built amazing products.
Cesar Guarinoni
They're my school  •  Production Director, NGD Studios. Previously Production Director, Hungry Game.
He is already a great one. He's been once since Junior Achievement in high-school.
Jason Della Rocca
We worked together  •  ICT Advisory Board Member, Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development Canada (DFATD) and Co-Founder / Indie Evangelist, Execution Labs.
Martin is as smart and tenacious as they come. Always achieving great things with the limited resources at hand.
John Welch
We worked together  •  President & CEO, Making Fun, Inc.. Previously President, Making Fun, Inc. - a division of News Corp..
Martin brought together a team and found whatever work he could to pay the bills. He sold, sold, sold, and eventually got me to fund a big p ... roject with his company. It was going very well until things changed on my side (I bought my company out of News Corp.) and I had to cancel. He kept the company together, executed a successful Kickstarter, and is still going. I would certainly work with Martin again in the future.

Eivar above all is a great person with the highest standards of work and ethics. He is commited to do things with the highest quality and at ... the highest efficiency. His most recent works are just a tiny proof of that. I would start a new endeavor with him with my eyes closed.
