And it was epic

More than 5 years have passed since I started working for eRepublik. As I went through both great and difficult moments, now is time for me to look for a new challenge. So, last week I resigned from eRepublik and kept just an advisory role in the company (besides my role as a shareholder that wasn’t changed).

Why? We built a great team and a great company. Nevertheless we’re close to that moment when my experience will help the company only marginally. So I am looking for a new challenge, a new start-up that I will build.

This is what I’m leaving behind:
- one of the biggest online start-ups that started in Romania;
- a financially solid company;
- a really great team.

Thanks to the people that were close to me:
- the eRepublik citizens – I’m proud for the moments of joy that you guys had while playing eRepublik and I apologize for the moments of frustration. What’s clear for me is that we couldn’t make it without you.
- the eRepublik team – It was a pleasure to work with you, guys. I personally learned a huge amount of things by growing this company together.
- Alexis Bonte – the best partner that I could ever had.

What will happen furthermore:
- eRepublik – my responsibilities are divided between Alexis and Mihai Adamut (Mihai being the Product Manager of eRepublik in the past 12 months). They are the most competent people to do that and, together with the rest of the team, I’m sure they will help the company grow even more;
- me – I will take 2 or 3 months in which I will relax (pretty interesting feeling after all those years) and meet people that will help me build my next company.

PS: You can contact me on the same mobile number and on my gmail address (george.lemnaru).

    I can’t believe you actually deleted my comments… lol Even another two that weren’t mine, lol. You really ARE just a scumbag. Just another one greedy bastard who think that can hide the truth with censorship, lol. You really are shallow man, just as most of you rich people always were. Shallow and ready to sacrifice anything around you for your own interest. I don’t know why i thought different for a moment haha.You shouldn’t do that, you blind little man. :) Everyone knows that you exploited erep community WE created, in the worst imaginable manner, for the benefits of a few. I mean, you even disbanded your own forum. Only idiots like those who posted before me can praise your deeds, you stupid man. Now, i’ll come here more often to tell people the real truth about erepublik, and you can continue to train your censorship skills.
