sTARTUp Gaming is a community gathering which aims to inspire people who have the urge to do more and be more. It may be your own company you're thinking about, new technology solution which could make a difference or just a secret dream you've been always wondering about. It's about wanting a Change! Our aim is to get you started with YOUR thing and YOUR business and that is why our conference will be filled with stories based on experiences which are proving that everything is possible. Get inspired and get ready to go!

If you are gaming industry specialist, designer, concept artist, programmer, marketer, business developer, product manager or just a true fan of games, then we have some inspirational boost coming at you. 6 worldwide speakers together with our local gaming industry heroes are going to take the stage and share inspirational stories and practical examples from the Gaming Industry. Topics will vary from creating VR avatars and successful Angry Birds to getting business and gamedev tips from serial gaming entrepreneurs.. We aim to upgrade the local Gaming Industry knowledge base to be greater together as a Community. At the venue, we will use clever old-school matchmaking methods and top Gaming Industry companies will be presented with their demo stands. And of course what is an event without fun games and delicious food.

sTARTUp Gaming is powered by Playtech.

sTARTUp Gaming is part of sTARTUp Talks which is an official side event series to sTARTUp Day - the biggest early stage business festival in Baltics. sTARTUp Talks is brought to life by sTARTUp HUB.
