Games Lift Kick-Off 2023 in New SPACE Innovation Rooms
On Monday, September 11, 2023, the official kick-off of the Games Lift Incubator 2023 took place in the new SPACE innovation space of the Hamburg Kreativ Gesellschaft.
The five developer teams who qualified for the Gamecity Hamburg funding program will not only receive financial support worth 15,000 euros but will also be supported in realization of their projects in form of dedicated workshops, individual mentor coaching, contacts to an extensive industry network, marketing support from a PR agency, and access to the SPACE rooms, where they can work collaboratively on their games.
The kick-off of the Games Lift Incubator started for the participating teams with a first introduction to the mentors, networking partners, the Gamecity team and each other in a relaxed atmosphere.
