For the first time, the Gaming Startup Retreat acceleration program aims to bring together startups related to video games, creative industries and entertainment. Developed within the scope of the activities of the eGames Lab consortium, by Startup Madeira, in partnership with NOVA SBE, and with the financing of the Recovery and Resilience Plan, this 1st edition is taking place, in person, between March 13 and April 21, 2023, in Madeira.
During 6 intensive weeks, the participating startups are having the opportunity to work, share knowledge and experiences, analyze their own business and set goals, accompanied by expert mentors.
