Meet our founders

Vasco Rouw (34) has always been passionate about games; he programmed his first game when he was only thirteen. That was the start of his game company Vasco Games, which he was running for 15 years, where he managed to grow the company to 140 people and generated more than one billion app store downloads. After his game company, he started a company in the self-education industry where he helped more than 10,000 people with their financial knowledge. He has spent the last few years gaining experience in various blockchain technologies. Now he is using all his expertise and lessons from the previous 20 years to make Poly World a success.

Rik Hoekstra (31) started experimenting with flash gaming at 16, marking his entrepreneurial journey in gaming. Since 2013 he has owned and operated several projects, most of which are mobile games. As of 2022, Rik’s most successful game has amassed over 34 million downloads and launched over 120 games. This experience in building and leading development teams will make a considerable contribution to Poly World’s success. Due to Rik’s expertise in game development, he has also developed a vast network within the gaming industry. All these things, combined with Rik’s belief in NFTs and digital ownership, make him the perfect match for Poly World!
