In 2016, many people on the planet still don’t have access to education, clean water and electricity; fundamentals that should be basic human rights and that most of us take for granted. In an attempt to help alleviate the difficulties that many across the world face, FARMERAMA is teaming up with Malala Fund to help every girl get a safe, quality education.
From 24th November until 9th December, all revenue generated from the “Learn and Grow” event will be going to the organization. Throughout the event, Bigpoint will cover all charges pertaining to transactions and affiliation costs.
“At Bigpoint, we strongly believe that video games can help alleviate real world problems and that our player community is extremely compassionate. Our teams have always felt the responsibility to do their part in assisting numerous organizations like the German Red Cross, charity: water and United Nations. This time, we are working with the Nobel Peace Prize laureate, Malala Yousafzai, through her non-profit organization: Malala Fund. We are excited to collaborate with Malala Fund on their mission and help bring education to young girls across the world.“ said Varun Nagendra, Director of Live Games at Bigpoint.

November 21, 2016: Training Bigpoint Employees to Become the Leaders of Tomorrow
After graduating from the University of Munster and achieving a Master’s degree in International Management at the International School of Management in Dortmund in 2011, Stephan decided to join Bigpoint as a Games Analyst.
Proving himself as a strong asset, the management gave him his chance after only 1 ½ years, appointing him as Lead Analyst. A year later, the results shown by Stephan proved that the management made the right decision and, with this in mind, they appointed him as the new Head of Business Intelligence.
When asked about what important skills and traits are required in order to be successful, he says: « First of all you must be a good people manager and mentor. Secondly, having a deep understanding of your products, product development, the markets you operate in and the company structure is mandatory. The other points that I’d like to emphasize are the importance of taking time to understand stakeholder’s management, processes and data structures. Take time to master the analytical tools and always keep yourself updated with trends. ».
While mastering all of the above skills, Stephan proved his leadership abilities and has shown tremendous results in building the Business Intelligence department. « It was no small feat, and we are impressed by Stephan’s results. We want to encourage these kind of profiles and the entrepreneurial mind-set in the company. » said Khaled Helioui, CEO of Bigpoint.
As a result of his hard work and commitment to the company, Stephan Neupel has been promoted to a new role as Director of Business Intelligence.
