By bringing Katz’s expertise to the table, the 8Hours Foundation hopes to boost awareness and generate higher adoption for its latest products launched under the VIMWorld banner.

“His industry weight is unmatched, having been part of some of the most successful novel product launches in gaming history. With extensive experience working at the head of Atari, SEGA and Mattel, we are confident Michael's advisory will prove indispensable for our future success, having already led major gaming companies to new heights and product areas.”
