For the second year, the Gaming Startup Retreat acceleration program aims to bring together startups and studios from the video game, creative and entertainment industries. Developed as part of the activities of the eGames Lab consortium, by Startup Madeira, in partnership with NOVA SBE, and with funding from the Recovery and Resilience Plan, this 2nd edition is taking place, in person, from February 19 until March 27, 2024, in Madeira.
During 6 intensive weeks, the participating startups will have the opportunity to work, share knowledge and experiences, analyze their own business and set goals, accompanied by expert mentors.
