Growing Games SPECIAL, June 28: Setting up a game-company, first steps
Want to be your own boss? The idea of starting a business is appealing to a lot of people and can be very rewarding.
This seminar will help you plan for a successful start to your entrepreneurship journey.
Following the recent layoff in the Danish games industry, we’ve had a lot of inquiries about how to start up a games studio yourself and what the challenges are for starting up on your own. You might have asked yourself those exact same questions.
As a result, we have decided to set up an afternoon seminar, that covers the basics of setting up a game company in Denmark. At the event, we will present basic information about the practicalities for registration and company types, investment money, public funding, offices and incubators, and finally we will also have two game startup companies who will tell how they got their start, and will be available for questions as well.
Recent startups and industry professionals with an interest in starting up their own company.
Attendees will be taken through the common pitfalls to starting new companies and will be introduced to ways to get help, information and funding for their new startup project.
