Julie Uhrman

Julie Uhrman is a video game entrepreneur. She is founder and CEO of OUYA—an innovative gaming console that enables any developer to publish a console game by bringing the mobile app model to the TV. OUYA is a powerful, beautifully designed, open and inexpensive alternative to traditional game consoles.

Julie started in the game business ten years ago. Before launching OUYA, she held several executive roles with video game companies such as GameFly, IGN (where she led digital distribution and business development) and Vivendi Universal.

Julie loves to play games: she plays platformers, 3rd person shooters and she loves playing games on a TV. But the last few years, she’s played more on mobile phones, because that’s where the action’s been. She wants to go back to playing on a TV.

By combining a classic console format with the ease of access of open mobile SDKs, Julie seeks to make OUYA the open pathway for all developers—AAA and indie alike—to bring their craft to the world.
