GameCamp Online: Founder’s Journey: Growing Data and Growth competences

Imagine a very tough, endless running game. From the first level you struggle with time, resources and energy. But you are determined. You move forward, step by step. Day by day you get new achievements, learn new skills and you build a team. This game is called Founders Life and it is a real-life, every-genres game.

In GameCamp Online: Founder's Journey we are inviting Founders and CEOs from mobile gaming studios to share their experience, failures and lessons learnt. From idea to now. And plans for the future.

All presentations are based on examples and case studies.
