A unique accelerator for game development was launched in the Netherlands in 2018. Young startups are admitted and invited to build a game or app in Groningen. The one-year program offers ample aid* to get you started, including mentorship, support in monetization strategies, marketing and more.
The Indietopia Accelerator organises workshops and talks by established developers, pitching sessions with possible clients, investors and publishers. This offers you many opportunities to present your game to the market. Above all, pitching sessions can also serve as a way to establish first contact with possible clients in order to land work for hire throughout the year.
In the third quarter of 2020 The Indietopia Accelerator will announce four or five additional challenges here, ranging from virtual and augmented reality to building an app that stimulates healthy behaviour in children.
*The aid that participants will receive is partly paid as a loan (spread over one year, including monthly payments, VentureLab support and rent for offices provided through Indiestad Groningen).
