CNNMoney posted a video today featuring Zwift CEO Eric Min talking about how our favorite game works, how it all began, and where it’s going.
In the interview, Eric breaks Zwifting into three activities: Exploring, Group Rides, and Workouts.
We also see some “vital stats” which I found to be interesting, especially since Zwift has never really stated how many subscribers they have.
Zwift’s Vital Stats:
- 80 Employees
- 120,000 subscribers
- $45 million in funding
You can also passing glimpse of some work in progress at Zwift. At 39 seconds Eric is looking over the shoulder of an artist working on a course with a more narrow dirt road–a running trail, perhaps? And at 2:06 developers are working on an updated mobile app which looks to have mapping functionality. Cool stuff!
Eric also talks about how it’s the community, not the game, that has made Zwift a success. I heartily agree!
