Congratulations to Nabeel + Conduit Labs

Congratulations to my friend Nabeel, who just raised $5.5MM from Charles River and Prizm.

For those who have been following casual MMOG space, it’s been clear for a long time that it was inevitable that a huge purchase like Club Penguin would be both inevitable and transforming. These casual MMOs combine both the advantages of online distribution, in the form of widgets, SEO, and advertising – as well as the deep engagement of online games.

Executing a product in this space requires both a deep background in online communities, distribution, as well as the ability to design compelling game experiences. Nabeel’s team has both.

Congrats to Nabeel and Susan for the start of a great partnership!
