11. Justin Beck

PerBlue

Co-founder and CEO

Launched: 2008

What We Like: The mobile gaming company’s flagship game, Parallel Kingdom, was the world’s first to leverage GPS technology to create location-based role-playing. And with a total of six
open-ended mobile-social games built for iOS and Android, PerBlue’s products are reaching millions.

Bragging Rights: Other than moving into Chris Meyer’s old dorm room in UW’s Chadbourne Residential College a year after the Sector67 founder lived there? Beck worked for big dogs like Google and Microsoft before launching PerBlue, all pre-graduation. PerBlue was named to the “Empact 100” list in 2012, recognizing Beck as one of the best entrepreneurs under thirty in the country. He accepted the award at the White House last fall.
