David Baszucki Bio:
Known best for creating and heading the ROBLOX internet games corporation, this software and technology entrepreneur also founded a company called Knowledge Revolution and served as Vice President of MSC Software.
He settled in Redwood City, California with his four children.
In the late 1980s, Baszucki, together with his brother Greg Baszucki, developed a simulation called “Interactive Physics”, which was designed as an educational supplement that would allow the creation of 2D physics experiments. In 1989, Baszucki, together with his brother, founded the company Knowledge Revolution, which was based around the distribution of Interactive Physics.Originally released for Macintosh computers, Interactive Physics went on to win multiple awards. As a follow-up to Interactive Physics, Knowledge Revolution launched the mechanical design software Working Model in the early 1990s.
MSC Software and investing
In December 1998, Knowledge Revolution was acquired by MSC Software, a simulation software company based in Newport Beach, California, for $20 million. Baszucki was named vice president and general manager of MSC Software from 2000 to 2002, but he left to establish Baszucki & Associates, an angel investment firm. Baszucki led Baszucki & Associates from 2003 to 2004. While an investor, he provided seed funding to Friendster, a social networking service.
In 2004, Baszucki, along with Erik Cassel – who worked as Baszucki’s VP of Engineering for Interactive Physics – began working on an early prototype of Roblox under the working title DynaBlocks. It was later renamed Roblox, a portmanteau of “robots” and “blocks”, in 2005. The website officially launched in 2006. In a June 2016 interview with Forbes, Baszucki stated that the idea for Roblox was inspired by the success of his Interactive Physics and Working Model software applications, especially among young students.
In a December 2016 interview with VentureBeat, Baszucki said, “We believe we’re starting to see a network effect. Retention is getting higher as more people come to play with their friends and have a better chance of finding their friends.” Baszucki believes that Roblox is ushering in a new “human co-experience” category that will become larger than gaming. In a September 2018 interview with Forbes, Baszucki said, “Right when we started, we imagined a new category of people doing things together. A category that involved friends, like social networking; a category that involved immersive 3-D, like gaming; a category that involved cool content, like a media company; and finally a category that had unlimited creation, like a building toy.”
Baszucki owns a roughly 13% stake in the Roblox Corporation, the company that owns Roblox, a stake estimated to be worth roughly $4.2 billion.
Baszucki spoke at the 2018 Disrupt – San Francisco conference. In 2020, Baszucki funded a study on the effect of hydroxychloroquine on COVID-19, which showed no evidence of it preventing or treating the virus.
He studied electrical engineering at Stanford University in Palo Alto, California.
His ROBLOX co-founder, Erik Cassel, died of cancer in 2013.
