Entrepreneurial Journey Speaker Series: Gaming Series
Exciting events are coming to the Kricker Innovation Hub this Fall and one of our favorites focuses on Entrepreneurship in Gaming, part of the Entrepreneurial Journey Speaker Series, taking place November 14th at 5:30 pm.
This year the Hub is excited to announce that we are partnering with Shawnee State University’s Game Conference to bring in speakers who are experienced in the realm of game development and entrepreneurship. The Shawnee Game Conference is an annual conference held at Shawnee State that focuses on all aspects of gaming; from game design, to Esports, and new developments in digital and immersive technology. The conference showcases the best work of students, alumni, and industry professionals through interactive sessions, displays, and tournament competition.
The Kricker Innovation Hub is collaborating with the Shawnee Game Conference to highlight entrepreneurship in the world of gaming and how much potential this industry has for entrepreneurs. Consumers are on track to spend $152 billion on gaming in 2019.
This speaker series event will feature a panel discussion and allow students, alumni, and community members to learn about the new innovations taking place in the game development industry, and get their questions answered by established professionals in the field. This speaker series event will be the kick off to the Shawnee Game Conference weekend and be followed by even more exciting events across the campus. While the conference requires an entry fee, this event is free and open to the public, made possible by a grant through the Charles Koch Foundation to encourage entrepreneurship.
Stay tuned and follow us on social media for upcoming announcements on our panelists!
