Until recently, Dru charged ahead with Heyzapâ€™s Business Development efforts, connecting the best Social Games with the largest internet sites.
Heyzap, funded by Y Combinator & Union Square Ventures, enables Social Game Developers to distribute their Facebook games to Heyzapâ€™s network of 200,000 websites. Heyzap was named one of the top 20 Silicon Valley Startups by Silicon Alley Insider.
Druâ€™s background is atypical for the gaming industry as his last venture was a wholesale gift manufacturing company, which he sold as a Senior in High School. He went on to briefly attend UC Berkeley before taking a leave of absence to jump into the startup world. He is a Startupist, that is, one who pursues new business ventures.
