Published on:

Cathal O’Sullivan, CEO of GameX, talks about his passion for gaming, his startup and how it can improve gamer's experience trough recommendations:

Cathal, describe yourself in 50 words or less.

I’m a normal enough guy really. I love gaming, football and people in general. I am highly motivated in achieving anything and everything. I am a bit of a scatterbrain, I make mistakes but I learn and grow from each mistake made.

What are you currently working on?

I am the CEO and Founder of GameX.

What led you to this?

Luck, I think. In my final year of college I worked with the former founder to create the original prototype, it was not designed to be a business. It was more to just pass college! It got some traction and people seemed to love it so here I am now.

What drives you?

Making my friends and family proud whilst working within a sector that I am passionate about.

In 7 years from now: Where do you see yourself?

I see myself being a recognized and trusted face of the gaming industry.

Tell us about your best idea and worst execution.

The initial release of gametionary was a great idea but although we got into some great incubators, execution wise there was a million things we could have done to improve it the initial release.

Tell us about your worst idea and best execution.

The worst idea I think I had was deciding to go from working in a coffee shop to becoming a CEO. It’s turned out pretty well so far!

What trends would you bet your money on? And how will they influence everyday life?

I’ve tried VR and AR a few times and it really is a game changer. I think it will change the way we shop, how we game and even how we socialize.

What seemed to be the most important thing in the world when you were 10 years old?

Waiting for DragonBall Z to air every saturday morning. Ha!

Who is your hero and why?

Elon Musk is definitely up there. A gifted individual with a vision to change the world for the better.

But I’d say my true hero(es) would be my family. They are amazing people who are incredibly hard-working. They were the ones to tell me to run with this business instead of taking a job opportunity at an international data company and I am grateful for the belief they have in me.
