Start-up: Games Entrepreneurs

WHEN: June 24th (application deadline), July 2024 - January 2025

“Start-up: Games Entrepreneurs” was launched in 2022 as a pilot project with the aim of providing creatives from the games sector with practical knowledge for their own start-up process with the help of industry experts. Having successfully established itself as a contact point for founders of indie studios in Berlin and Brandenburg in recent years, the program is now set to become even more attractive to a broader target group by being held in English.

The free educational program is aimed at founders from the games industry and is specially tailored to their needs. The program consists of three pillars:


  • Workshops on founding a successful game studio and publishing the first game,
  • Mentoring of the individual teams by industry experts,
  • Networking with other indie developers and within the games industry in general.


The individual workshops take place on working days for a full or half day on site at the Stiftung Digitale Spielekultur or regionally based game studios and institutions in Berlin and Brandenburg. Occasionally, workshops can also take place online.

Apply here by June 24th.
