July Meetup: A little rough, but a lot of good stuff!

Our July meetup went off (with only a couple of glitches) last night. We were happy to welcome Andrew Menchions as well as Laura Churchill and Dorian Rowe from NLFDC, who gave us a high-level introduction to tax credits game developers can avail of. Jordan Galbraith of Orange Slip Studios shared some of his experiences trying to raise money for a new company. Jeff Mercer from the Department of Tourism, Culture, Industry and Innovation helped fill in some of the blanks, and indicated that our members are always welcome to come talk about their work to see if there are programs that might help them get a leg up.

The live stream cut off in the middle of the discussion, unfortunately, but we were able to recover at least a couple of remote attendees using our appear.in room. The volume there was apparently not ideal, so we’ll continue to work on that setup for future events. At the very least we’ll add a spare laptop charger to the GDNL equipment box!

Thanks to all our invited guests as well as our attendees, both in-person and remote. Hope to see you all again in August!

July Meetup: Open Forum on Funding

Our next meetup will take place at 7:30PM on July 11th at Common Ground, 30 Harvey Road.

We’re going to try something a little different for this meetup. We’re inviting all attendees to come and share their thoughts and experiences with finding and attracting funding for their projects. Funding is the most-asked-for topic at our meetings right now, and in lieu of having a dedicated talk on the topic, we’ll see if we can get some synergy going.

We are inviting some special guests who may have insight into this issue, and if any attendees would like to invite their own special guests, that would be very much appreciated!

Thanks to Ryan Hale for the suggestion of an open discussion.


If you’d like to book a 2-minute Appetizer slot to talk about a topic of interest before the main meetup, please fill out the form below:
