Marc Merrill is the Co-Founder of Riot Games. Riot created League of Legends, one of the most popular video games of all time. League of Legends World Championship rivals the Super Bowl viewership — with close to 100 million last year. The company even brought in $1.5 billion in revenue this past year. But when Marc started the company, there were times they barely had funds left to pay employees.
