Login Samo

A graduate of the Faculty of Computer and Information Science, University of Ljubljana, with a master’s degree from Maribor University. Together with his wife Iza in 2009 he founded the company Outfit7, which they launched successfully with their own initial capital. 

Samo and Iza saw their chance when Steve Jobs predicted the arrival of the Apple app store. They assessed the market and trends and within one week their mobile app became a world success. Talking Tom first appeared in June 2010, and on the first weekend jumped to the top of the mobile app ladder. Their globally successful games, Talking Tom and Friends received several awards. In 2016 the applications App Annie, My Talking Tom and My Talking Angela were ranked among the top 10 most downloaded free mobile games in the world. 

Currently he works within his own philanthropic foundation, the Login5 Foundation. Prior to establishing his own companies Outfit7, Login Establishment and Login5 Foundation, he worked in various Slovenian IT companies. One of his better-known and more successful projects was setting up the Slovenian web search engine, for which in addition to its implementation he can also claim credit for the concept.

He and his wife regularly pay back to society. They are major philanthropists and they support the initiative The Giving Pledge, where they invest the majority of their time and resources in non-profit environmental projects. Since they sold the Outfit7 company in 2017, through their Login5 Foundation they have been focused on environmental issues.
