The recent Zynga acquisition of OMGPOP could have happened years ago in 2008, according to founder Charles Forman. As the site morphed from a focus on dating to games, Forman orchestrated his own exit.
“I guess I grew up,” said Forman. “I wasn’t pushed out. I wanted to leave in the most graceful way possible. There was no press story so I guess I did it right.”
Forman’s OMGPOP stock is now worth around $22 million. “I’m going to start angel investing. And, after [PictureLife], I might become a teacher,” he said. “I want to redistribute the karma.”
