From YetiZen Gamasutra Press Release
Launch of the 1st YetiZen Boot Camp Program for Latin American Game Studios
Raising all ships, one game studio at a time
YetiZen, the wildly popular accelerator for gaming companies and the host of the YetiZen Innovation Lab has launched its first ever boot camp program for game studios coming from emerging gaming ecosystems.
YetiZen recognizes that there are many promising game studios across the world. Unfortunately, due to a lack of a developed ecosystem and with it limited access to information, connections, and mentorship these companies are often unable to achieve the success they otherwise can. San Francisco on the other hand is the world’s densest community of game developers anywhere and has in abundance what these other ecosystem’s lack. The boot camp program is YetiZen’s solution to address this problem and raise all ships in gaming.
In collaboration with Global Game Designers Guild or GGDG, YetiZen’s Latin American partner YetiZen has brought nine game studios from across Colombia and Mexico to the YetiZen boot camp. Four of these companies are attending the boot camp online while the other five are in person at the YetiZen Innovation Lab.
