Gaming Futures is a new panel series delivered in partnership by Nottingham Trent University and The Creative Quarter.
We all know that making great games, products and technology doesn't always bring instant fame, glory and wealth.
Using platforms such as Kickstarter and Patreon, more developers than ever before are turning to new ways of raising the funds that allow them to continue making brilliant things; the way they want to make them. For independent developers, crowdfunding can be a way to stay independent and build an audience for their work. For established teams and studios, it can be a way to make the games they always wanted to make, broaden their audiences and take back control from narrow-minded publishers.
This panel event will be an insight into crowdfunding and other alternative avenues of raising the money you need to keep creating independently.
During this event you will get the opportunity to network with like-minded businesses. There will be a Q&A session at the end of the event for you to get helpful advice for your business.
The event is running in conjunction with GameCity9.
It is free to eligible small and medium businesses in the East Midlands, but booking is essential as places are limited.
We are committed to helping business growth in the region through our working with you... programme, which is part funded by the ERDF.
The event will begin at 12.30 pm with a complementary lunch reception. The panel talk and Q&A session will follow at 1 pm.
