Thought game companies were all just fun and, well, games? Think again. Last year game startups raised more than $600 million, helping to fuel job creation and future innovation in the booming industry, according to VentureBeat.com. Game industry veterans and venture capitalists will dish their perspectives on the future of the industry, at this event sponsored by the MIT Enterprise Forum’s New England Games SIG and the New England Venture Capital Association.
Xconomy’s very own Wade Roush will be moderating, helping panelists answer questions on Massachusetts’ position in the games startup world, the investment outlook for the industry this year, and what it takes for new game companies to attract venture capital.
Registration is free, so sign up at this Eventbrite site.
