The Katowice Entrepreneurship Academy of Video Games is aimed at  those with an entrepreneurial interest in Video Game Development.

 In particular, our Summer Academy will be focused on identifying innovative  solutions that will enhance the probability of successful market entry with  new video game or game type. The program is designed to guide the  participants through the whole process of validation, development and  presentation of their own ideas. It will be a highly interactive training with a  series  of hands-on activities and practical workshops and exercises,  where  the participants will have the opportunity to be in touch with  international –  dependent and independent – professionals,  specialists, and analytic in the  field of GameDev.

 The academy will be held in English.

 During this summer 2016, the second round of STARTIFY7 academies will take place in four European locations: Almeria in Spain, Enschede in Netherlands, Katowice in Poland, and Thessaloniki in Greece. Last year, the first round took place in: Bavaria in Germany, Sheffield in United Kingdom and Trento in Italy.

Each academy will welcome around 40 participants who will work in teams with an innovative lean-training structure and curricula as they develop their entrepreneurial ideas and associated technical skills based on the academy theme. The 3 best performing teams from each academy will be selected to attend a fast paced 3-day acceleration boot-camp in Brussels during Fall 2016 where they will present their demos and pitch in front of the Pan-European audience of practitioners, investors and business angels.
