Pocket Gamer Connects Helsinki 2019 will take place on October 1st to October 2nd. To give you a taste of what to expect, we'll regularly be publishing interviews with the speakers at the show.

In this speaker profile, we caught up with Martin Macmillan, the CEO of Pollen VC. Macmillan has worked at the intersection of finance, technology and media, starting 3 companies since quitting banking in 2000.
Martin has 20 years’ experience in launching and building technology businesses in the FinTech, music and media sectors, and a prior career in Investment banking as a bond trader.
Having experienced first-hand the growth challenges facing tech start-ups and the lack of financing options open to developers, he saw the opportunity to marry his traditional financial markets and technology experience to create a disruptive new business model for the digital industry.
Prior to Pollen, Martin was CEO at Soniqplay, CEO at Level Four (acquired by clear2pay), and a Director of UBS in London, where he ran the short term credit trading group and conceived and delivered UBS’ first client-facing electronic debt trading platform.
At Pocket Gamer Connects Helsinki 2019 he'll be giving a session entitled The Most Important Metrics to Scaling UA.
