The year begins and with it new opportunities. It’s time for companies, entrepreneurs and startups in the video game and gamification sector to realize those projects that were kept in a drawer waiting for the opportunity to see the light.
A month ago the Madrid in Game Video Game Campus was inaugurated, an initiative of the Department of Economy, Innovation and Employment of Madrid City Hall, which promotes this cutting-edge industry. The Development Center pavilion will welcome these entrepreneurs and help them take them to the next level.
Madrid in Game has launched a pioneering entrepreneurship program at national and international level in which it will bring together talents from video games, gamification and eSports. The first call will start in March this year and gradually new calls will be opened to support more entrepreneurs in the sector.
For 6 months, those selected will benefit from training, support from mentors, assistance in finding funding and attendance at events. In addition, they will have a workspace with all the tools to develop their ideas and make their company solvent, both from a technological and commercial point of view.
The entrepreneurship program adapts to the different projects according to the stage of maturity in which they are, divided into 3 phases: the pre-incubation phase, for those who work on an idea, a conceptual design or a prototype; the incubation phase, intended for companies that already have a prototype and wish to launch themselves on the market; and the acceleration phase, for launched projects seeking to consolidate their business model.
How to register ?

I’ve traveled to worlds you’d never believe, only to end up with enemies that defy mysticism. I felt my pulse quicken with each battle, and the sigh of someone who knows they will have to get back up. There’s always a villain waiting and an adventure around the corner.
