This is how easy it can be. Alex Rigopulos and Eran Egozy have told CNN that Harmonix’s initial cash input was peanuts scrounged from personal contacts.
“We raised an initial round of capital from friends and family, meager by today’s standards – $100,000 – but it lasted us a whole year because I was still living like a grad student,” said Egozy.
He added: “Somewhat selfishly, we just wanted to keep working on the cool things we were doing at the media lab. Our revenue was pretty much zero for five years.”
Rigopulos lived with his parents in the early years.

Yay them. More on Gamespot.

As you can see here, Alex Rigopulos and Eran Egozy – the guys that spawned Harmonix’s Guitar Hero and Rock – have made the Time 100, coming in at 70. The duo are a far cry from Miyamoto in top position, obviously, but congrats to you, chaps. May you make plastic guitars for the masses for many moons to come.
