Growing Games: Levelling up – business basics for gamedev startups
Note: This event will be in English
Are you ready to start your own game studio?
If you have just started your own game company, or if you are considering doing it, this is the workshop for you.
We’ve planned an afternoon filled with all the most essential knowledge for game studio startups. The formal process of setting up a company, contracts and paperwork, early funding and essential tips from some of the CEOs who have already run the gauntlet, and survived.
After attending this workshop, you will be much better equipped for the early stages of your new game company, and hopefully you will avoid a lot of the most common early mistakes.
