Igor has launched and managed international ventures in online payments, games, and equity investment management, fast food and FMCG (fast-moving consumer goods). Mikhail launched and continues to run a global producer and distributor of board games. All these successful ventures provided the GamesUp42 co-founders with the necessary financial resources and the unique perspectives of the gaming industry to launch and grow the company to what it is today.
The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Noël Adams is one of Igor’s and Mikhail’s favorite books. In the book the number 42 is the "Answer to The Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything". When creating the name for the new company, Igor and Mikhail thought of this number as a witty reminder of the ambition and drive behind the group of companies.
