In fewer than 20 years, Chris DeWolfe has started two companies that have been pivotal in redefining the technology industry in Los Angeles. In 2003, DeWolfe co-founded MySpace, the world’s first social media and networking platform. Two years later he sold it to Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp for $580M. At the end of 2009, DeWolfe had reunited with ex-MySpace co-founders Aber Whitcomb and Colin Digiaro as well as former Fox Executive, Josh Yguado, to launch a new gaming platform, Jam City. Today, the Culver City–based company also works with some of the biggest brands in the world, including Harry Potter and Disney’s Frozen. In 2018 the company launched Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery, which became the fastest game to hit $100M in revenue in Jam City’s history. It went on to become the number one downloaded game in nearly 40 countries. In January 2019, Jam City raised $145M, bringing the company’s total financing to more than $300M.
